Overview

Now in its Fourth Edition, The Periodontic Syllabus focuses its attention on the biologic approach to treatment modalities in this ever-expanding field of periodontics. This new edition keeps students and practitioners of dentistry current on periodontal techniques. The implant dentistry section and the new mucocutaneous diseases chapters have been expanded. A new chapter on Occlusion in Periodontal Disease has been added to make this reference complete.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rodrigue G. Barakat, DMD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is a well-illustrated summary of the fundamental science of periodontics, including the basic principles, diagnosis and treatment. Brief chapters on the restorative and maintenance phases of implant dentistry are also included.
Purpose: The purpose is to feature the latest means of treatment for diseases of the periodontium and edentulous areas of the dental arches. I think that these are worthy objectives and essential to the clinician in order to provide optimum treatment to the patient. The editors are able to achieve their objective, but sometimes topics are much abbreviated. Still, to the reader who does not possess a good understanding of current literature, the information provided is useful, short, and easy to access.
Audience: The practicing dentist, dental hygienist, and dental student are targeted.
Features: This text is easy-to-read and contains all the pertinent information including basic sciences, classification and methods for diagnosis, surgical and non-surgical treatment principles, information on instruments and medications, and an overview of dental implants. The way the book is written enables the reader to easily find quality references on all the topics discussed. An interesting feature is the series of color pictures in the chapter on mucocutaneous diseases of the periodontium.
Assessment: I think this "cookbook" format will be very attractive to the reader who is looking for quick and easy to access information on the subject. This type of syllabus will never replace the textbooks but will always be a good tool to quickly refresh the memory of the practitioner and/or student. The presentation is nice. The book is easy to read and carry; however, it would have been nice if each picture was labeled with a title. I think it would help the reader assimilate the pictures faster. The book is reasonably priced and contains quality images. Information is easy to access. I find that with the speed at which periodontology evolves today, this new version is a necessary improvement. Finally, I think that it would be interesting to include information on the new systemic doxycycline treatment for periodontitis before publishing this edition.

    Excellent text!!!

    This book does a wondeful job summarizing the etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases. This text is succint, yet complete. I highly recommend this extremely useful reference for dental students, dentists, and peridontists.
