The fourth edition of this classic prosthodontic textbook features a new chapter on implant-assisted removable partial dentures as well as an in-depth chapter describing the Prosthodontic Diagnostic Index. As before, the text provides an overview of removable partial denture service in contemporary dental practice, with an emphasis on clinical and design aspects. Clinical topics range from examination and treatment planning to mouth preparation and prosthesis placement. Common design philosophies and a step-by-step method for partial denture design are presented. Also included are alternative removable partial denture therapies such as Swing Lock, dual path, and attachment-type prostheses. To facilitate visualization and understanding, the text is accompanied by numerous illlustrations. Like those that came before it, this edition is intended to help the student, the general practitioner, and the specialist consistently provide high-quality prosthodontic treatment for their patients.
