Shafie's Clinical and Laboratory Manual of Implant Overdentures instructs clinicians and laboratory technicians on the step-by-step utilization process of this treatment modality. Currently many countries are adopting the implant overdenture as a standard of care for fully edentulous patients. Although implant overdentures are an attractive treatment modality for fully edentulous patients, the necessary clinical and laboratory training as well as the variety of attachment systems often create confusion about which system will best suit each patient's needs. This four-color handbook presents 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 how to manage a successful and dynamic implant practice. Featuring comprehensive coverage in a compact package, this book allows clinicians and lab technicians to find precise answers quickly. A wide variety of implant systems are featured in the book.
