Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Russell A. Baer, DDS (University of Chicago)
Description: This new text on implant dentistry comprehensively covers the expanding field well.
Purpose: The original design is as an introductory text for dental students in their third year. The book had gone beyond this and provides a foundation of knowledge for all practitioners. In the young field of implant dentistry, comprehensive texts are a welcome addition to a fast growing science. As an introductory text, this book shines, but as a technique manual its comprehensiveness does not allow adequate depth.
Audience: This book was designed for dental students, but it is appropriate for any practitioner of dental implants from beginner to experienced. The authors are well known to this field with previous books and articles and are considered leaders in the field. They have chosen many top people in the field to contribute chapters.
Features: The book is illustrated with a variety of pictures, graphs, tables, and diagrams. They effectively support the text, but some of the pictures would have been clearer had they been in color. Each chapter is well referenced with many of the historical references listed. The table of contents and index are well done, and the overall appearance is neat and compact and avoids overwhelming the reader.
Assessment: This book is successful in its mission to be an introductory text on implants. It is comprehensive in many areas, both surgically and restorative, and it uses a historical perspective to document growth in the field. This comprehensiveness does not allow great depth in many areas, and no attempt is made to comment on the appropriateness of all techniques mentioned. This book is an important addition to the growing field of dental implants and will allow other books to expand on these topics.
