Book Description

Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery provides the qualified and trainee periodontist with a pragmatic approach to mucogingival plastic surgery, imparting knowledge and expertise through its step-by-step examination of the actual clinical requirements of each procedure. The book focuses on the increasingly requested esthetic procedures such as crown lengthening and root coverage, but it also deals with other mucogingival operations, such as hard and soft pre-prosthetic and pre-implant ridge augmentation. Uniquely, there is also a focus on the burgeoning field of periodontal microsurgery, and the techniques and methods learned from other branches of microsurgery are applied to realities of dentistry, for enhanced soft tissue results.

Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery begins by outlining the place and development of periodontal plastic surgery, and the factors, chiefly periodontal health, that affect surgical outcomes. Periodontal microsurgery is then introduced before the step-by-step description of the surgical procedures with their expected outcome. Each operation is taken in turn, explaining the techniques used and the instrumentation required, and illustrating every step with an abundance of clinical photographs. Finally, the book concludes with a discussion of patient selection criteria.

This book will benefit periodontists, dentists, residents and students alike by strengthening understanding of mucogingival surgery through a thorough appreciation of each part of the procedures involved.

Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery, May 21, 2009

Photos are excellent. I have done some of these proceedures for the first time after study of this book.

Very Practical, April 19, 2010

I found this humble looking book very useful. The procedures are well described in the text, even though many of the pictures are self explanatory. Those who are dedicated to oral, periodontal or implant surgery will find simple ways to enhance the outcome of their treatments. It also has a second part, Advanced Periodontal Plastic Surgery which is excellent.

Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery, January 11, 2012

Good book for reference if you are already doing surgery in of office. There is no detail description on how to and where to make the incisions on most of them. A illustration drawing would help then following by photographs will definitely help. Most technique are described, one picture shows the before and ‘presto’ the next one it is finished with nice sutures, the between pictures mostly hard to see what went on.
