Key Features

  • Organized to guide the reader from the basics to the post-procedure management of implants
  • Guidance on the use of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in implant dentistry
  • Radiographic analysis protocol (pre and post implant placement)
  • Radiographic evaluation of implant complications
  • Provides correct terminology, methodology, and science for implant imaging analysis
  • The main topics include: anatomy and nomenclature of dental implants as well as biological and biomechanical considerations; imaging toolbox options, with the utilization of these options for planned implant site evaluation; discussion of common pathology that may be encountered in the analysis of radiographic data with applicable implant correlations; available alveolar process augmentation options based on radiographic imaging data; imaging protocols for postsurgical implant procedure and the radiographic appearances of success; and the radiographic appearance of complications associated with dental implant treatment
  • Comes with Amirsys eBook Advantage™, an eBook featuring expanded content, additional images, and fully searchable bulleted text for quick, easy reference
