Implants are increasingly used by the dental profession to replace missing teeth or upgrade existing removable dentures. CONTEMPORARY IMPLANT DENTISTRY, written by the foremost dental implantologist in the United States, reviews the most popular implant systems. This comprehensive book focuses on patient selection, diagnosis, treatment, and management, including long-term follow-up care. The book follows a practitioner's thought process when planning and implementing an implant placement. Featured in the book are anatomy, medical evaluation, interaction with specialists, and treatment complications.

* Provides objective appraisal of various implant systems so practitioner can determine the clinical efficiency of a system before making the investment. * Emphasizes patient selection, work-up and treatment planning with several approaches that may benefit the special needs of a patient. * Covers complications, infections and retreatment of implant surgery to show the general practitioner how to deal with treatment failures that occur in about 10 percent of cases. * Biomaterials, biomechanics, anatomy and physiology chapters explain what is occurring at cellular and functional levels to help predict success or failure. * Taking a multidisciplinary approach to implant dentistry, the roles of general dentists, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and periodontists are discussed.
