Book Description

Publication Date: December 2011 | ISBN-10: 1841849065 | ISBN-13: 978-1841849065 | Edition: 2

Now that the first wave of enthusiasm for implants has died down, practitioners are beginning to need information about the long-term maintenance of implants and the complications that they may present. An increasing number of dental practitioners are considering dental implants in the treatment of their patients. The range of applications, protocol variations, the complexity of implant systems and related management have all increased dramatically over the last decade, and this may be bewildering to the newcomer to implant dentistry. This pioneering text presents an unbiased guide to the various different implants currently manufactured and indicates which, in the authors’ experience, is best for which indication. The text compares the main different types of implant, discusses the advantages and disadvantes of each, includes data on long- term results which is not necessarily found in earlier books, and provides an independent and critical approach to the subject.

Editorial Reviews


This is a well-written and well-illustrated book and will appeal to any dentist involved in, or looking to become involved in implant treatment. It would be an excellent first book on implants for the conscientious and motivated dentist. – Dental PracticeThis is a very welcome addition to the literature and amply reflects the broad experience of the authors. It is an excellent resume of the state of the art to date, This book was a pleasure to read. The use of bullet points to outline key details and structure the text gives the book clear and crisp style which is apparent from the first few pages. – British Dental Journal

Implants in Clinical Dentistry, August 8, 2004
I found this book very well organized, well illustrated and easy to read. It was full of practical advice for the practitioner wishing to place and/or restore implants. It gave unbiased information on how to surgically place and restore single and multiple fixed cases as well as removable implant cases using four different implant sysyems (Nobel Biocare, Astra Tech, Strauman and Frialit) but their advice could easily be applied to other implant systems.
The book was full of useful tables , diagrams and color illustrations. I think it would serve as an excellent reference book for any dentist wanting to embark on or expand their scope of practice in implant dentistry.
