This new book focuses on dental implants used in conjunction with other prosthetic devices in the general dentist's office, designed to help the partially or completely edentulous patient recover normal function, esthetics, comfort, and speech. Step-by-step procedures guide practitioners through challenging clinical situations and assist them in refining their technique. The information in this practical, highly illustrated book reflects the latest in continued research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, materials, and techniques. Prosthetic devices covered in this include complete dentures, bridges, overdentures, and various dental implant systems. A comprehensive chapter covering immediate load implants teaches dentists how to provide an edentulous patient with implants the same day surgery is performed. A thorough discussion of preimplant prosthodontic considerations takes the practitioner through the vital assessment steps necessary to plan treatment. Considerations for assessing the restorability of teeth adjacent to potential implant sites include abutment size, crown-root ratio, endodontic status, root configuration, tooth position, parallelism, root surface area, caries, and periodontal status. Fixed treatment planning options for the completely edentulous mandibular arches expands treatment options available to dentists, helping them to treat more patients. Material thoroughly explores the three dimensional concept of available bone and the implant treatment options for each type of bone anatomy, which enables practitioners to treat patients at any stage of edentulism. Comparisons of the periodontal indices for a natural tooth and an osteointegrated implant alert clinicians to fundamental differences in the support system. Basic biomechanics are discussed, demonstrating how these principles also relate to the scientific rationale for contemporary and future dental implant designs. A comprehensive discussion of bone density in an edentulous site explains this determining factor in treatment planning, implant design, surgical approach, healing time, and initial progressive bone loading during prosthetic reconstruction.

CD-ROM bound into book presents five cases of varying difficulty with interactive exercises that allow users to plan treatment. What's the Evidence? boxes link clinical decision-making and treatment planning strategies to current research. In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist. Review Questions and Suggested Projects, located at the end of each chapter, summarize and reinforce important concepts presented in the book. Key Terms and Glossary highlights the terms that are most important to the reader. Suggested Readings lists included at the end of most chapters provide supplemental resources.
