Prosthodontics is the subspecialty of dentistry that deals with the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth.

Divided into six sections, each part provides in depth detail on a specific type of prosthesis - complete dentures, removable partial dentures, fixed partial dentures, maxillofacial prosthesis, implants, and dental materials.
The section on implants has been completely reorganised with the addition of new chapters, and the section on dental materials is brand new to this edition.
The book includes discussion on anatomical land marks and lab procedures, as well as evidence based clinical practice and operating techniques. More than 3000 clinical photographs, diagrams, concept maps and charts enhance learning and enable quick revision.
