In a new 3rd edition, Contemporary Implant Dentistry is organized to follow the thought process that the practitioner goes through when planning and implementing an implant reconstruction.
The third edition of Contemporary Implant Dentistry addresses the science and discipline of implant dentistry. This book has barely doubled in size and has added new chapters in treatment planning, bone grafting, and implant surgery. In addition, more than 2000 illustrations have been used to detail related concepts.
This book emphasizes patient selection, work-up and treatment planning with several approaches that may benefit the special needs of a patient. Prosthetic chapters range from the restoration of an implant to full mouth rehabilitation. Over dentures, implant occlusion (fixed and removable) and maintenance are also presented. Cover complications, infections and retreatment of implant surgery to show the general practitioner how to deal with treatment failures. Biomaterials, biomechanics, anatomy and physiology chapters explain what is occurring at cellular and functional levels to help predict success or failure.

Now in a new 2nd edition, Dental Implant Prostheticsis organized to follow the thought process that the practitioner goes through when planning and implementing an implant reconstruction.
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.
