This book has it all, and can truly be considered the definitive implant prosthodontic textbook. Like its predecessor, it functions as both a textbook for students and a dental reference for practitioners. The authors aim to provide a prosthodontic perspective to the various aspects of implant treatment, from the biologic mechanisms of osseointegration to implant design and configuration, to maintenance and management of complications. Organized into four sections, the book systematically takes the reader through the foundational principles of implant dentistry, to evaluation and restoration through a variety of clinical situations, and into more specialized topics and treatment scenarios. In addition, a downloadable illustrated glossary is available for easy reference. Emerging digital technologies and materials used to design and fabricate implant prostheses are an important focus, as are implant positioning, angulation, and spacing for each situation. Designs of implant-assisted overdentures are described in detail as well as the various bone and soft tissue enhancement procedures currently in use, particularly in patients with unfavorable periodontal biotypes. The book also focuses on the importance of interdisciplinary treatment in providing safe and effective results, making it a must-have to complete any dental library.
