As with all Quintessence books, the illustrations are excellent, and are
directly relevent to the accompanying text. The style of the book is extremely
readable, and for the practitioner who is becoming involved in implant
dentistry, this book offers an excellent introduction to the subject, and a
handy reference for dealing with multiple clinical situations, along with a good
overview of both the surgical and prosthetic aspects of treatment.

Outlines the materials and procedures currently used in
clinics to assess patients for the appropriateness of dental implants and to
perform the actual surgery. Submerged and nonsubmerged implants, implant
diameters, and specific surgical techniques are described in separate chapters.
Most of the authors work in French hospitals, and the textbook may be of
interest to practicing dental surgeons who want to keep their skills current.
