Overview

Papers from a November 2000 symposium attempt to reconcile current clinical understanding of aging, with or without osteoporosis, with overall dental patient management strategies, placing particular emphasis on the induction and maintenance of the osseointegrated response. Themes are biologic and bioengineering considerations for prescribing prosthetic implants, the oral surgical experience, the prosthodontic experience, and biologic perspectives related to osseointegration in the elderly. Specific topics include tooth loss in the elderly patient, the effects of osteoporosis on the mandible, and cigarette smoking and osseointegration. Zarb is professor and head of the prosthodontics faculty of dentistry at the University of Toronto, Canada. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
