Overview

The Basic Guide to Dental Procedures provides an indispensable induction to the core preventative and restorative treatments routinely carried out in the modern dental practice.

Written as an introductory guide for the whole dental team, it makes no attempt to explain the theory and clinical technique behind each procedure in detail. Rather, with the aid of ‘before and after’ colour illustration it offers sufficient overview to enable the reader to understand and explain procedures to their patient with confidence.

Each section is clearly structured to cover the reasoning behind the treatment described, the relevant dental background, the basics of how each procedure is carried out and if applicable, aftercare information.
