Back Cover Copy
The new edition of this well established and highly regarded textbook has been completely revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field of tooth loss and denture provision. Primarily aimed at students in the undergraduate and immediate postgraduate years, it will also be of value to all those, including clinical dental technicians, who are faced with the increasingly challenging problems of complete denture treatment in dental practice. Starting with a thorough grounding in the background and theory of denture treatment, the book goes on to describe clinical procedures for all stages of treatment as well as devoting a chapter to the diagnosis and management of clinical problems. The clinical chapters also include sections on quality control, where topics are suggested for consideration in audit cycles. Now in full colour throughout, this fifth edition of Prosthetic Treatment of the Edentulous Patient contains nearly 200 illustrations and also includes a brand new section on implant overdentures. KEY FEATURES Stresses the importance of evidence-based treatment Emphasises care of the elderly and the value of holistic treatment Uses a flexible approach to accommodate patient variation Highlights the importance of good communication between clinician and dental technician Includes many high-quality full colour illustrations
Bowker Data Service Summary
Complete denture work is more challenging because people are living longer. The fifth edition of this standard text explains how to manage the transition from a pre-edentulous to an edentulous condition.
Main Description
Despite continuing improvements in oral health, there will always be a significant number of people who lose all of their teeth. As people live longer and total tooth loss occurs later, successful provision of complete dentures is increasingly challenging, and managing the transition from the natural to the artificial dentition has become more critical. On top of this the clinician must meet the ever increasing aesthetic and functional expectations of their patients. The fifth edition of this well established and highly regarded textbook has been completely revised and updated and includes a brand new section on implant overdentures. Now in full colour throughout, the book contains over 100 illustrations. Primarily aimed at undergraduate dental students, Prosthetic Treatment of the Edentulous Patient will also be of value to all those, including dental technicians, who are faced with solving the problems of complete denture treatment in dental practice. Adopts a flexible approach to accommodate the variation found in edentulous patients Sections on audit at the end of each clinical chapter Stresses the importance of evidence-based treatment Emphasises care of the elderly and the value of holistic treatment
