The Axelsson Series on Preventive Dentistry:
The world-renowned authority on preventive and community dentistry presents his life's work in this five-volume series of clinical atlases focusing on risk prediction of dental caries and periodontal disease and on needs-related preventive and maintenance programs.
Volume 1: An Introduction to Risk Prediction and Preventive Dentistry
Provides a general overview of current and future trends in risk prediction, control, and
nonaggressive management of caries and periodontal disease; preventive dentistry methods and programs; and quality control.
Volume 2: Diagnosis and Risk Prediction of Dental Caries
Includes a comprehensive discussion of the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, risk indicators and factors, individual risk profiles, and epidemiology of caries.
Volume 3: Diagnosis and Risk Prediction of Periodontal Diseases
Presents a comprehensive discussion of the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, risk indicators and factors, individual risk profiles, and epidemiology of periodontal diseases. Considers periodontal diseases as a possible risk factor for systemic diseases and presents current and future trends in the management of periodontal diseases, including nonaggressive debridement and preservation of the root cementum.
Volume 4: Preventive Materials, Methods, and Programs
Discusses self-care and professional methods of mechanical and chemical plaque control, use
of fluorides and fissure sealants, and integrated caries prevention. Addresses needs-related
preventive programs based on risk prediction and computer-aided epidemiology analysis for quality control and outcome.
Volume 5: Nonaggressive Treatment, Arrest, and Control of Periodontal Diseases and Dental Caries
Details current and future trends in nonaggressive treatment methods that seek to preserve the root cementum; surgical versus nonsurgical periodontal therapy; repair and regeneration of periodontal support; management of furcation-involved teeth; restricted use of antibiotics; arrest of noncavitated enamel, dentin, and root caries lesions; nonaggressive mini-preparations; esthetic and hygienic aspects of restorations; and management of erosions. Focuses on needs-related maintenance programs to ensure the long-term success of treatment and to prevent recurrence of periodontal disease and dental caries.
