The success of the management of patients requiring treatment with dental implants depends on how we think and put the decisions into practice.
The book entitled Decision Making into Dental Implantology: Atlas of Surgical and Restorative Approaches is the result of over 20 years of study in dental implantology, in private practice, as well as in clinical education.
The book is divided in 6 chapters accompanied by an index.
We are introduced to the current status of clinical practice with dental implants for completely and partially edentulous patients. The evidence quality rating / strength of recommendation of procedures proposed by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is described.
For the treatment plan of bone defects in the alveolar ridge we are presented with the characteristics of the most frequent osseous defect, the use of bone grafting materials for bone filling and the mechanism of osseous repair.
The rationale and clinical use of different treatment modalities in esthetically compromised areas is described suggestively with the help of 12 cases.
Clinical treatment alternatives for the posterior areas of the mandible and the maxilla are presented and illustrated by 15 cases.
The role of certain phases of performing successful implant-supported oral rehabilitation of completely and partially edentulous patients is exemplified by 8 cases.
Finally, we are presented with suggestions for the multidisciplinary construction of treatment approaches for cases evincing high esthetic and functional complexity based on 6 cases.
The book covers the latest concepts for implant dentistry, treatment planning for alveolar bone defects, esthetic areas, areas posterior and oral rehabilitation based on the latest references in the scientific literature. Decision making in dental implantology is a useful reference, illustrated with over 2000 color images, being a guide for periodontists, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, implant dentists and dental residents.
