Product Description:
 
This book uses an interdisciplinary approach to explain the origin of and possible solutions to many different occlusal problems. Dr. Peter E. Dawson guides the reader along the way providing balanced explanations of theory and technique. He also debunks many popular misconceptions through practical discussion of their origins and the deficiencies of the arguments behind them. Different sides of many philosophies are presented while guiding the reader to the most functional and esthetic solution to various occlusal situations. Hundreds of full-color photographs, illustrations, and diagrams show aspects of the masticatory system, the epidemiology of occlusal problems, and procedures for finding the ideal occlusion. Whether the reader is a general dentist or a specialist, they will find this book applicable to their treatment methods and philosophies.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  No EBD here., September 29, 2015
By Mitchell
This book is not evidence based in the slightest. It is merely the rambling opinions of the author.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  It's ok, but not good bibliography, February 07, 2013
By Vicente Sánchez Diaz
The book contains an enormous amount of information and covers many topics, the problem is that there's no real bibliography that supports the data, basically the author is just giving his advice based on his own experience but no real science to back it up.
