Specialty Imaging: Dental Implants

By

  • Dania Faisal Tamimi, BDS, DMSc, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology Consultant, Private Practice, Beamreaders, Inc., Orlando, Florida

Meticulously written by board-certified oral and maxillofacial radiologist, Dr. Dania Tamimi, and a team of sub-specialty experts, Specialty Imaging: Dental Implants is a comprehensive reference ideal for anyone involved with dental implant imaging, including oral and maxillofacial radiologists, oral surgeons, periodontists, technicians, and general dentists. With an easily accessible format and an organization that takes readers from the basics to the post-procedure management of implants, Dental Implants encourages and facilitates more inclusion of and collaboration with oral and maxillofacial radiologists for implant planning. It educates clinicians on how to use imaging tools efficiently and effectively to get the most out of their radiographic imaging data, resulting in overall better treatment outcomes for the patient. As with all Amirsys references, all of the information is distilled into succinct, bulleted text with detailed illustrations and thousands of images. Coupled with a companion eBook, this volume will surely become the standard reference textbook for all involved in implant dentistry.
