More About This Textbook

Overview

Material presented here represents the European move in dentistry toward focusing on the patient's interests rather than on the dentist's. Restorative approaches are described as alternative interventions to deep-seated modes of treatment. Emphasis in this approach is on risk assessment and decision making with regard to the patient's dietary habits, social status, ethnic background, and oral hygiene practices. Chapters are in sections on prevention and diagnosis and preservation and restoration of tooth tissues. Some topics include methods for caries detection, replacement or repair of dental restorations, and composite resins. Material originated at the inaugural ConsEuro meeting held in Bologna in 2000.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lou Graham, DDS (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book gives the reader a solid understanding of direct restorative care using adhesion dentistry. The constant focus of this book is preservation of tooth sructure using a basis of diagnosis, dental materials, and anatomy, all coupled with clinical cases.
Purpose: The basis of this book is conservative dentistry and the author reinforces his opinions chapter after chapter. With today's population living longer, along with advancements in materials, this is a very worthy objective. The author overwhemingly achieved his objectives.
Audience: The author targets both educational institutions and practitioners of adhesive/esthetic dentistry. There is no question, based on the thoroughness of this book, that the authors are well qualified. The true question is when will dental institutions in North America realize the future is now and make essential changes in student dental training.
Features: The authors present 17 chapters covering all aspects of modern adhesion dentistry. Subjects covered include: prevention, detection, assesment, dental materials and science, diagnostic indications, esthetic anterior and posterior direct and indirect restorations. This book is truly in-depth regarding the materials and science of adhesion dentistry and presents detailed coursework on direct restorations. Although the subjects often can be confusing, the authors take a very logical approach in their writings, illustrations, and photography that allow the reader a solid understanding of the subjects. It is my belief a Volume 3 is needed to get into more depth regarding the indirect restorative world and all the new materials.
Assessment: This book is a must read for all practitioners who believe and practice the art of adhesion dentistry. The step-by-step approach to the clinical cases make the book a great resource for reference. The approach is so refreshing because we are often confronted with leaders in the industry who all too often suscribe to non-conservative treatment. As we all have witnessed, this area of dentistry is changing at a rapid pace and future editions will be required as new materials and procedures are developed.
