Prosthetic treatment of patients with missing teeth is a vitally important area of practice for dental practitioners, and consequently for all dental students as well.

All three of these options are now covered in entirety in this comprehensive guide, making it easy for students to acquire treatment planning skills needed for dealing with real patients, beginning with a discussion of tooth loss as the presenting problem and guiding the reader through the available alternatives.

Rating: 3 Stars from Doody

The widespread perception that constructing well-fitting complete dentures is simply too difficult is challenged by the innovative and time-tested approach presented in this book. The guiding philosophy behind this procedural atlas is the author’s belief that visualization of form is an essential first step in proper denture design, without which a denture will fail to function satisfactorily. An abundance of color photographs enhances this highly detailed guide to the technical procedures involved in denture construction, and the book is highlighted by practical clinical tips that the author has accumulated through his many years of making complete dentures.

Book Description:
This concise clinical handbook educates dental practitioners seeking to understand, recognize, and manage disorders such as sleep apnea, sleep bruxism, and chronic pain, which often interfere with or intrude into sleep and are critically important to the practice of dentistry. Leading experts in medicine and dentistry articulate and guide readers in performing the specific responsibilities of dental practitioners, such as routinely examining patients for the risk of sleep-disordered breathing; providing guidance and appropriate referrals to patients who report snoring, sleepiness, and morning headache; managing the tooth damage or pain generated by bruxism; knowing when to prescribe oral appliances and understanding their associated risks; and collaborating closely with maxillofacial surgeons or ENT specialists when surgery is indicated. This unique book is a rapid source of practical information for students, practicing dentists, and researchers who wish to expand their knowledge base on this important topic.
