Overview

A full-color dental textbook that offers a completely new approach to the study of implant dentistry. In this highly procedural text, each surgical technique is presented clearly and distinctly in a step-by-step fashion. This book is for undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, and continuing education students, as well as for current practitioners who are students of implant dentistry in the broader sense, those who wish to deepen their knowledge and expand their scope of treatment. Whereas most implant dentistry literature tends to focus on complex cases, this book meets the need for instruction that focuses on the safe and predictable cases that comprise the majority of what the typical implant practitioner encounters in practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION:

"The authors' thorough knowledge of the surgical, as well as the restorative aspects of implant dentistry...contribute to a well-written and well-illustrated textbook. One of the many positive aspects of the 790 illustrations was that a very high percentage of them are on the same page to which they are referred.

For this reviewer, the crux of the textbook was the chapter on choosing the appropriate implant modality, based primarily on the available bone. The authors also list the overlapping areas of use for the different implant types, and guidelines are provided for choosing a specific approach.

Because of the provided in-depth review of basic implant subject matter (treatment planning bone healing, quantifying remaining bone, implant materials and design, etc.), the book would be a good addition to the library of both the inexperienced student as well as the seasoned practitioner."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rodrigue G. Barakat, DMD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This book covers different techniques of implants used in dentistry while reviewing the basic science.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe implant dentistry to anyone in the profession who is involved in the insertion phase, the restoration phase, or both. The objectives are similar to many books that are already published.
Audience: The book is written for an audience composed of undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate, and continuing education students as well as for practitioners.
Features: The book contains chapters on many different types of implant techniques. A long discussion is provided on the use of blade and subperiosteal implants, techniques that are declining in use compared to cylindrical endosseous implants.
Assessment: I think that this book is too wordy for what it has to present. Too much emphasis is placed on blade and subperiosteal implants and the book does not provide much more information than do others already on the market.
