DescriptionEven with the option of dental implants, periodontists, restorative dentists, and general dentists alike continue to treat patients' natural teeth on a day-to-day basis. Procedures including crown lengthening surgery, furcation treatment, mucogingival therapy, and tooth restoration are essential treatment regimes requiring multifaceted expertise. Periodontal-Restorative Interrelationships: Ensuring Clinical Success provides guidelines for comprehensive treatment planning, and features step-by-step clinical instruction for periodontal and restorative procedures from beginning to end. As a result, the book fosters better understanding and increased efficiencies between specialties, resulting in shorter treatment times and consistently better therapeutic outcomes.
Periodontal-Restorative Interrelationships: Ensuring Clinical Success begins with a careful discussion of treatment planning, comprehensively covering all variables in simple to complex cases. Subsequent chapters focus upon the most commonly encountered clinical challenges, using a systematic, easy-to-follow approach to various treatment methodologies. All chapters are well-illustrated with clinical examples. Firmly grounded in evidence-based research, the book affords clinicians from multiple specialties a practical guide for predictable, successful results. Accessible and logically organized, Periodontal-Restorative Interrelationships is an invaluable reference for all clinicians performing these procedures.
