Overview

PERIODONTOLOGY FOR THE DENTAL HYGIENIST covers all aspects of periodontology, from the history of its study, to client assessment, to therapeutic and surgical approaches. The bulk of information is organized to be directly applicable to what hygienists will need to know to treat clients effectively. Also included is discussion of how periodontal conditions relate to general health and systemic factors. Now in full color, the detail and attractiveness of the content keep it ahead of its competition. Students of dental hygiene will find this book their cornerstone of periodontology, while practicing dental hygienists will find Periodontology for the Dental Hygienist an invaluable reference source.

• Text is focused to specifically target the topics taught in periodontics courses in dental hygienist programs.
• Dental terminology is clearly explained and introduced in the initial stages of each chapter to better acclimate students to their usage and mastery.
• Tables and boxes present information in a clear and tidy manner to facilitate learning new concepts.
• Learning outcomes introduced in the initial stages of each chapter guide students toward clear goals and allow them to focus effort on the most important aspects of the content.

• New chapter on prognosis after periodontal therapy, thereby including the full spectrum of the treatment continuum.
• New features in every chapter include learning outcomes, key terms, summary points, updated references, and additional review questions.
• A wide variety of visual aids includes hundreds of full-color clinical photographs, illustrations, and diagrams.
• Updated and increased number of case studies are presented to prepare students for real-life scenarios.
• A glossary at the back of the book allows students to locate terminology quickly.

Editorial Reviews

Michael F. Gewerth
This book contains a well-documented course in periodontics for the dental hygienist. It includes the history, courses, and treatment modalities complete with pictures. The purpose is to help dental hygiene students, dental hygienists, and periodontal therapists. This book is written for dental hygiene students and practicing dental hygienists. The book has excellent illustrations but lacks colors photos. The overall appearance of the book is very plain. I found the text very informative, but perhaps a little too intense for students. The book is very well documented and includes good illustrations of technique and etiology.
