Dental Implant Prosthetics
- A comprehensive chapter covering immediate load implants
teaches dentists how to provide an edentulous patient with implants the same
day surgery is performed.
- A thorough discussion of preimplant prosthodontic
considerations takes the practitioner through the vital assessment steps
necessary to plan treatment.
- Considerations for assessing the restorability of teeth
adjacent to potential implant sites include abutment size, crown-root ratio,
endodontic status, root configuration, tooth position, parallelism, root
surface area, caries, and periodontal status.
- Fixed treatment planning options for the completely
edentulous mandibular arches expands treatment options available to dentists,
helping them to treat more patients.
- Material thoroughly explores the three dimensional concept
of available bone and the implant treatment options for each type of bone
anatomy, which enables practitioners to treat patients at any stage of
- Comparisons of the periodontal indices for a natural tooth
and an osteointegrated implant alert clinicians to fundamental differences in
the support system.
- Basic biomechanics are discussed, demonstrating how these
principles also relate to the scientific rationale for contemporary and future
dental implant designs.
- A comprehensive discussion of bone density in an edentulous
site explains this determining factor in treatment planning, implant design,
surgical approach, healing time, and initial progressive bone loading during
