A clear photograph of each instrument is included, and described according to name, usage, any relevant features and varieties.

Sedation is a procedure that makes use of sedative medications to produce a relaxed experience for the patient. The central nervous system (CNS) is affected through the use of drugs, including tranquilizers and anxiolytics, that can be administered to the patient in several ways. Sedation dentistry has several benefits, both for dentists and patients. For patients, it can mean freedom from anxiety or fear during dental procedures. In cases where a patient has not been able to undergo dental treatment for many years because of this fear, sedation dentistry allows him to have several years' worth of dental treatment in just a few sessions. For dentists, sedation dentistry facilitates the easy performance of dental procedures. Patients are likely to be more cooperative under the relaxing effects of sedation. Treatments can also be quicker, because a number of procedures can be performed in a single session. Dental nurses play a vital role in assisting the dentist in the routine sedation of patients. In acknowledgement of this, the NEBDN run a post-qualification certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing that provides the dental nurse with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to carry out their role safely and competently. The ‘Basic Guide to Dental Sedation Nursing' is a must have book for all dental nurses seeking to develop their knowledge and understanding of this core area of clinical practice. Written in a clear and accessible style, chapters reflect the Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing syllabus with chapters on such key topics as legal aspects, anatomy, equipment, patient assessment, types of sedation, medical emergencies and resuscitation.

The title Interpreting Dental Radiographs indicates the intended prac tical nature of this book. It is hoped that students, practitioners, dental radiologists and senior radiographers will find this straightforward volume a useful chairside as it covers the common, and some of the more rare, companion, radiological appearances seen within the field of dentistry. Medical radiologists should find the text and related radiographic examples a useful supplement to their knowledge of general radiology. The writer has attempted to indicate that interpretation of dental radiographs is not always simple and straightforward, particularly when considering periapical changes and neoplasms. Careful assess ment of the whole radiograph is essential to avoid the pitfall of developing 'tunnel vision'! No apology is given for the repetitive indication of the types of radiographic views necessary to illustrate structures and pathological processes. It is hoped that this will make students realise the importance of requesting the correct radiographic views for the condition under consideration. The few references given should open the field of further reading to those interested in dental radiology.
