A Practical Guide

A virtual 'Apprentice's Manual', this practical guide takes the student through basic procedures in simple steps, thus underpinning more theoretical teaching provided elsewhere. The author begins with the principles of tooth extraction then goes on to advise on the use of radiographs and the administration of anaesthesia. Surgical removal of teeth is also covered, and a complete section deals with possible complications and their management.
This new book not only provides students with the fundamental knowledge needed to perform their first tooth extraction but also prepares them for more complicated techniques they may need to use later on. It should be an essential purchase for every dental undergraduate.
