About this book

This book highlights the potential of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound, or LIPUS, to introduce a new era in dentistry by revolutionizing the approach to dental treatment and providing a cure for pathologic conditions long considered untreatable. Readers will find information on all aspects of LIPUS, from its mode of action and biologic mechanisms to the full range of emerging clinical applications. The role of LIPUS in promoting dental tissue repair and regeneration and in tissue engineering is fully explained in a series of chapters focusing on stimulation of cell metabolism in the dentocraniofacial region, bone healing, periodontal regeneration, the temporomandibular joint, pulp cell differentiation, the salivary glands, and orthodontics. The past two decades have witnessed numerous discoveries that have enhanced the scope for use of therapeutic ultrasound in dentistry. In summarizing the latest knowledge in this exciting field, the book will be of interest to dental surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, and other practitioners.

Reviews

“This book highlights a new possibility of dental treatment for some pathological conditions considered untreatable with conventional methods by the use of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS). … The authors, presenting and illustrating the latest discoveries and uses of ultrasound in dentistry, manage to attain their aim and write a particularly useful book for dental surgeons, orthodontists, periodontologists, and other practitioners.” (Florin-Eugen, Stomatology EDU Journal, Vol. 6 (1), 2019)
