This is a collection of 49 cases that cover steps in implant dentistry, accompanied by unique features such as self study questions and answers at the end of each chapter.
The purpose is to address new trends in implant dentistry using a problem- and case-based learning format to present the essential topics in implant dentistry.
The audience is dental students and postgraduate residents, as well as prosthodontists and implant dentists preparing to take board examinations. The book also can be useful for dental school faculty. The authors are highly credentialed and respected in the field.
The cases are arranged in 10 chapters that cover diagnosis, surgical site preparation and implant placement, restoration, and maintenance. The information presented in the cases progresses from common to increasingly more challenging. The questions and answers at the end of the chapters are well done and very helpful in guiding the course of treatment.
The use of cases in a problem-based format is unique, as are the self-study questions. This format provides interactive learning modules for readers for each chapter. This book is somewhat different compared to other books in the way that the information is presented. It is of good quality and easy to follow.
