The fifth edition of Clinical Periodontology and Implant Dentistry brings to its readers another iteration of the unrivalled, unparalleled work on the specialty of periodontics. The editors have brought together contributions from experts all over the world to provide the reader with a comprehensive, cohesive text that fuses scholarship and science with clinical instruction and pragmatism. Clinical Periodontology runs the gamut of sub-disciplines and topics within periodontics and implant dentistry, supporting an intellectually and internationally inclusive approach.
The fifth edition includes a wealth of new and revised chapters that reflect developments in the field in the years since the fourth edition was published. The sections on anatomy of the periodontium and the basic sciences underlying tooth and implant attachment have been expanded, as has the section on pathology and pathogenesis of periodontitis. Increased interest in the interdisciplinary aspects of periodontology is reflected by new chapters on orthodontic anchorage. Other important topics with increased prominence include: risk assessment and host-modulation therapies, regenerative therapies, and a full discussion of surgical and non-surgical therapies.
With an approximate increase in length of 25% and over 15 new chapters, the 5th edition of Clinical Periodontology and Implant Dentistry has grown beyond the confines of one volume. Two volumes divide the topics into basic sciences and applied clinical concepts, at the same time maintaining a seamless integration between the two.
This book is the cornerstone of periodontology, and represents a unique distillation of the specialty by an expert group of authors under the tutelage of a legendary editorial team.

“With so many excellent aspects of implant dentistry covered in such great detail, it should be easy to see why I therefore recommend this fine textbook as a ‘must reference’ for any practitioner involved with the placement and/or restoration of implants. The editors are to be commended for their studious and detailed fine work.” (Implant Dentistry, April 2009)”I would highly recommend this book to undergraduates, postgraduates, clinicians and researchers … .Who will no doubt refer to this text time and time again.” (Dental Update, November 2008)
“This is a comprehensive textbook … it is useful to those at all stages of their under-graduate career.” (British Dental Journal, August 2008)
Classic in the field, February 20, 2010
I disagree with the other reviewers. I have taught and done research in the field of Peridontology for the past 30 years. This is the best of the periodontal textbooks. Beautifully written and wonderfully documented. It is a classic.
Still slogging through this, March 5, 2011
I’m not done with this book.
My periodontist recommended this book as the very best book written on the subject.
While I’m not done with it, I have to presumptively agree.
Compared to Carranza and Rose & Mealey, these books are far more thorough.
These books cover a wider scope of things, and provide more depth.
The illustrations are excellent.
As the previous reviewers have written, the index is terrible.
There is also some jargon, but it’s not as bad as some management books.
I’ll get back at it after taxes.
