Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery provides the qualified and trainee periodontist with a pragmatic approach to mucogingival plastic surgery, imparting knowledge and expertise through its step-by-step examination of the actual clinical requirements of each procedure. The book focuses on the increasingly requested aesthetic procedures such as crown 254ening and root coverage, but it also deals with other mucogingival operations, such as hard and soft pre-prosthetic ridge augmentation. Uniquely, there is also a focus on the burgeoning field of periodontal microsurgery, and the techniques and methods learnt from other branches of microsurgery are applied to realities of dentistry, for enhanced soft tissue results. Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery begins by outlining the place and development of periodontal plastic surgery, and the factors, chiefly periodontal health, that affect surgical outcomes. Periodontal microsurgery is then introduced. The main body of the book comprises the step-by-step description of the surgical procedures. Each operation is taken in turn, explaining the techniques used and the instrumentation required, and illustrating every step with an abundance of clinical photographs. Finally, the book concludes with a discussion of patient selection criteria. This book will benefit periodontists, dentist, residents and students alike by strengthening understanding of mucogingival surgery through a thorough appreciation of each part of the procedures involved.
