This book is intended principally for undergraduate dental students in their final year and dentists taking postgraduate courses. It should also be of interest to professionals complementary to dentistry, seeking an introduction to the subject. The text is not intended to develop skills to the specialist level, but rather to help in preparing for examinations or clinical situations in which basic knowledge of the topic is required.
The text has been arranged in an ordered sequence from an introduction to the subject, through to completion of treatment using implant-stabilized prostheses and the all-important management of problems. Since there are a number of clinical situations where it may be advantageous to use dental implants, several of the chapters describe procedures that could be used in different circumstances.
The text is not primarily intended to be read from cover to cover, but rather as a series of discrete chapters, although many build on knowledge acquired in earlier sections. Readers may therefore find it helpful to select particular chapters when seeking information on one aspect of implant therapy. Consequently, many chapters contain brief resumes of information covered earlier in the book to avoid needless cross-referencing.
The information has been arranged in three ways. Firstly, there is the body text, which covers each topic in the intended detail; secondly there are supplemen-tary photographs and diagrams; and finally there are a number of summary lists which are intended to be used by the reader as an aid when preparing for an examination or wishing to use the material in a clinical setting.
The information in this book cannot be faulted and the pictures are of very good quality.” D Walmsley, British Dental Journal, January 2004
textbook is ideal for undergraduate dental students, and any member of the dental team who wants a deeper insight into some of the implant treatment possibilities.” Dr Waseem Noordin, Dental Practice, September 2003
the book is incredibly well organised, breaking down information into a series of headings and bullet points. This information is also summarised in table form. The text is comprehensive, supported by a wealth of clinical images and schematic illustrations covering all aspects of implant dentistry. The authors have aimed this book at final year dental students, dentists taking postgraduate courses and professionals complementary to dentistry. In laying the book out in discrete chapters in an easy to read style, I think that it will find an enthusiastic audience.” Instructor, University of Birmingham School of Dentistry, Dental Update, April 2004
