This book offers comprehensive coverage of new techniques, important developments, and innovative ideas in all fields of clinical dentistry. Some topics discussed in this compilation include the biomechanical considerations of the extraction site in orthodontics; prognosis of operculectomy procedures in vertically impacted mandibular third molars; a 3D analysis of the loop position in anterior retraction arch wire and its effect on produced forces; comparative evaluation of subepithelial connective tissue grafts and acellular dermal matrix grafts in the treatment of gingival recession; understanding and evaluating the role of local anesthesia in dentistry; a review and case report of supernumerary teeth; the biological effects of static magnetic fields of commercial samarium-cobalt orthodontic magnets on cultured escherichia coli and staphylococci aurous; subpedicle connective tissue grafts; surgical removal of genial tubercules; and a discussion on the development of root analogue implants.
