A full-color dental textbook that offers a completely new approach to the study of implant dentistry. In this highly procedural text, each surgical technique is presented clearly and distinctly in a step-by-step fashion. This book is for undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, and continuing education students, as well as for current practitioners who are students of implant dentistry in the broader sense, those who wish to deepen their knowledge and expand their scope of treatment. Whereas most implant dentistry literature tends to focus on complex cases, this book meets the need for instruction that focuses on the safe and predictable cases that comprise the majority of what the typical implant practitioner encounters in practice.
