Description:This updated edition of a book covering removable partial denture prosthodontics provides many relevant photographs and illustrations to aid in understanding. The previous edition was published in 1992.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide students and practitioners with a basic understanding of all aspects of removable partial denture therapy and then apply these concepts in a clinical situation. These are worthy objectives, and the book presents students and practitioners with the theoretical understanding of removable partial denture prosthodontics and then applies this knowledge in a clinical situation. The book definitely meets the objectives.
Audience:The book is written for students, residents, and practitioners. The authors are credible authorities on this subject.
Features:There are many visual aids that are very effective in delivering the information. For example, the design of the removable partial dentures is illustrated and demonstrated with an actual metal framework on a stone model and exact drawings of designs on the stone models. There are also color photographs of design and survey in chapter 7; clinical photographs of procedures with patients and without patients; and demonstrations of laboratory procedures. The area of maxillofacial prosthodontics deserves a general introduction, but this topic is not included.
Assessment:Overall, the authors suggest techniques and opinions that are based on currently accepted prosthodontic practice. The book is well written and the text is accompanied by many colorand black-and-white illustrations of good clarity, an improvement from the previous edition.
