With an approximate 25% increase in length, the fourth edition keeps pace with the level of interest and growth of research in periodontology. Chapters included in previous editions have been updated and many new chapters added, including modifying factors in periodontal disease, risk assessment, and genetics in relation to periodontitis.
The remarkable scholarship evident in the text is matched only by the quality of the illustrations, which guide the reader through the wealth of material detailed in the book. These features combine to make essential reading for the discerning student and practitioner and an asset to the faculty or practice library.
The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.
5 Stars! from Doody
"This book is a comprehensive text in the field. The editors see this text as a guide for students in their academic pursuits, and as an encompassing reference text for the clinician. This book definitely succeeds in its objectives.
I concur with the editors on their general appeal to all involved with periodontics. The editors and contributors are leaders within the field of periodontology and thus very credible.
This book contains superior diagrams, graphs and illustrations. The clinical pictures are excellent in their clarity and details. The references are pertinent. The book presents itself as the editors intend, to be one of the essential texts in periodontology.
This textbook serves as an excellent educational resource for both students and practitioners."

Doody Review Services
"From the perspective of the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, the obvious strength of the book would lie in part 3, Implant Concepts. However, for the oral surgeon, surgical dentist or dentist engaged in implant placement and superstructure construction, the first three-quarters of the book will also prove to be useful and instructive."
"The text is erudite, well-referenced, well-written, and the photographic illustrations are of a high standard."
British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in The British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
"Over 20 years, this has developed into the foremost European text on periodontology...The volume is superbly presented and easily assimilated. Undoubtedly it will benefit both specialists and general practitioners, and can be recommended as a reference volume for students."
"To list the book's strengths would require more words than I am allowed. Clarity of writing and illustrations are compelling aids to the reader, and the division into three concept sections -- basic, clinical and implant -- is made with a logical progression of topics. As a clinician I am impressed by the care taken over illustration. Both clinical and radiographic photosgraphs are of an extremely high standard."
British Dental Journal
"Interested general dentists, post-doctoral students, and clinical periodontists should have this text in their library. This is now the textbook of periodontology/ implantology with which others will be compared."

Reviews Comments on the Previous Edition
"This is probably one of the most comprehensive texts written for students on the subject of clinical periodontology and implant dentistry, and I believe will make an excellent text for both the undergraduate and graduate student in periodontics."
Australian Dental Journal
"This magnum opus is truly a tour de force . . . the reviewer quickly runs out of superlatives as he peruses this third edition of today’s number one source on clinical periodontology and implant dentistry . . . I cannot begin to do justice to the breadth and depth of this tome and the beautiful color illustrations that enhance the concepts."
