Product Description:
 

Covering the functional and esthetic needs of edentulous patients, Prosthodontic Treatment for Edentulous Patients: Complete Dentures and Implant-Supported Prostheses, 13th Edition helps you provide complete dentures, with and without dental implant support. It addresses both the behavioral and clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment and covers treatment modalities including osseointegration, overdentures, implant-supported fixed prosthesis, and the current and future directions of implant prosthodontics. New to this edition are full-color photographs and coverage of immediately loaded complete dental prostheses. From lead editor and respected educator George Zarb, Prosthodontic Treatment for Edentulous Patients provides an atlas of clinical procedures and emphasizes the importance of evidence-based treatment.

  • Short, easy-to-read chapters cover the essentials of care for both short- and long-term patients, stressing the importance of evidence-based treatment.
  • Expanded coverage of implant prosthodontics addresses the clinical protocols for implant-retained and implant-supported prosthodontic management.
  • Specific chapters address the three surfaces of the complete denture: (1) an impression or intaglio surface, (2) a polished surface, and (3) an occlusal surface, the integration of which is crucial to creating a stable, functional, and esthetic result.
  • Chapter on health and nutrition examines a number of systemic conditions (vesciculoerosive conditions, systemic lupus erythematosus, burning mouth syndrome, salivary dysfunction, Sjögren's syndrome, hyper/hyposalivation, diabetes) that affect the oral cavity and specifically influence the prognosis for wearing complete dentures or for accepting osseointegrated prostheses.
  • Chapter on the time-dependent changes which occur in the oral cavity focuses on both time-related direct (ulcer/cheek biting, irritation hyperplasia, denture stomatitis, flabby ridge and pendulous maxillary tuberosities, hyperkeratosis and oral cancer, residual ridge reduction) and indirect (atrophy of masticatory muscles, nutritional status and masticatory function, control of sequelae)changes in the oral environment, and provides strategies to minimize the risk of such changes.
  • Chapter on the techniques used to prolong the life of complete dentures focuses on the two techniques used to extend the life of dentures: relining and rebasing, also touching on denture duplication.
  • Well-respected editors and contributors are the leaders in their field, lending credibility and experience to each topic.
  • NEW! Over 800 full-color photos and illustrations highlight key clinical and esthetic details.
  • NEW Immediately Loaded Complete Dental Prostheses chapter describes the rationale for the popular approach to immediately loading full arch implant supported/retained prostheses, allowing both enhanced functional outcomes and an accelerated time frame for completion of treatment.
  • NEW The Impact of Socioeconomic, Cultural and Technological Changes and the Notion of Standards of Care and Alternative Protocols chapter addresses the "appropriatech" concept of providing cost-effective, appropriate care and describes techniques that make complete dentures accessible to those who do not have access to alternative care, including discussions of alternative protocols such as Complete Dentures in Four Clinical Sessions (CD4).
  • Completely revised Materials Used in the Management of Edentulous Patients chapter includes expanded information on the properties, behaviors, and limitations of dental materials used in the rehabilitation of the edentulous patient, including impression materials (such as zinc oxide-eugenol impression paste, hydrocolloids, agar, and silicones), polymeric denture base materials (including rapid-cure type resins, biocompatibility of acrylic-based resins, residual monomer content, and radio-opacity of denture bases), denture cleansers (microwave radiation), and denture adhesives (such as adjunctive retention, indications/contraindications, application, and adverse reactions).

I have just finished reading this, and it is very informative and knowledge-dense. Particularly well arranged chapters and narrative. The star I'm refraining from giving is because I am inclined to feel like the author does seem to express a little bit of subjectivity towards implant procedures. While implants, by intuition, are much simpler than surgical techniques, it is still clear that the author tries to somewhat push the idea of that fact a little further, which sometimes goes beyond the scope of the purpose of the book, which is meant to educate.

To leave this on a positive note, this is a very good book. I would highly recommend it for anyone who needs to educate themselves in this particular topic. It covers all what needs to be known, and the knowledge in it is conveyed in a manner that's very reader-friendly. Having read other books before, I like ones like this, where the publisher does not "assume" that you know something, but rather picks you up from the basics onwards. Provided, of course, that you do have somewhat a mere base level background on the scope of prosthodontics treatment, and a base-line background on anatomy.

Aside from that, this book is not, in any sense of the word, you go-to book for implants. You can feel the subjectivity regarding the description of implantology. It's as if you feel like the next edition would say that it'd be better to extract all your teeth and replace them with implants. Because implants are the best. Every disadvantage according to this book is NOT really a disadvantage. It's as if it goes to say that even the surgeon who lacks skill can use implants as their toy, because there is absolutely nothing that could go wrong with them. Very subjective, extremely bias, and non-educational.
