Overview

Basic Guide to Dental Instruments provides a working inventory of dental instrumentation in common use in dental surgeries. A clear photograph of each instrument is included, and described according to name, usage, any relevant features and varieties. Each section is dedicated to a specific discipline or division of dentistry. Complete set-ups have been included at the end of most sections for various procedures. The coverage reflects instrumentation and accessory items used in general dental practice, routine hospital dental procedures and selected specialist settings.

The author adopts a flexible approach which recognises that some instruments are multi-functional, and their names and usage can vary across dental surgeries. This approach, coupled with the range of instruments covered, makes the book an ideal 'portable' resource across general practice, hospital and a range of specialist settings. The book also highlights instruments which can be easily confused. In addition to detailing the classic sets of dental instruments, the importance of instrument care and sterilisation regimes is acknowledged.

This second edition contains an expanded chapter on instruments used in conjunction with dental implants, and illustrations have been updated throughout.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In conclusion I would describe this new edition as a concise illustrated guide of commonly used dental instruments, set over 18 sections, which provides an excellent reference for trainee dentists and nurses.”  (VVT Magazine, 1 March 2012)

"The second edition of this book supersedes its predecessor boasting updated photographs of a high quality, as well as an extended section on instruments used during implant related procedures ... This is undoubtedly a useful book for individuals at an early stage of their clinical careers as well as for those revising for dental OSCEs at both undergraduate and postgraduate level." (British Dental Journal, 25 November 2011)
