Overview

Clinical and Laboratory Manual of Implant Overdentures is a ground-breaking guide to this popular and effective treatment modality, which is increasingly seen as the standard of care for the fully edentulous patient.

A wide variety of implant systems are featured in the book presented as an accessible, intuitive directory for classifying attachments. It lists clinical indications and contraindications for each attachment assembly, details surgical placement techniques complete with color photographs and schematic illustrations, and explains how to present appealing treatment plans to potential candidates, as well as advising on how to manage a successful and dynamic implant practice.
