This new book focuses on dental implants used in conjunction with other prosthetic devices in the general dentist's office, designed to help the partially or completely edentulous patient recover normal function, esthetics, comfort, and speech. Step-by-step procedures guide practitioners through challenging clinical situations and assist them in refining their technique. The information in this practical, highly illustrated book reflects the latest in continued research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, materials, and techniques. Prosthetic devices covered in this include complete dentures, bridges, overdentures, and various dental implant systems.
Treatment supported by clinical evidence equips students with a more targeted evidence-based approach to patient procedures.
NEW! Emphasis on treatment planning helps decrease the number of visits while providing effective, long-term results for the patient.
NEW! Focus on the patient presentation offers the latest treatment options for bone harvesting, restoration and recovery.
NEW! Original illustrations and photos highlight and clarify key clinical concepts and techniques.
