Product Description:

The seventh edition of Peridontal Instrumentationand Advanced Root Instrumentation continues in the tradition of bringing faculty and students everything they need to understand instrumentation and put knowledge into practice. Taking a highly visual, step-by-step approach, this title is an easy-to-use guide to learning this crucial component of dental hygiene. No other text offers such an array of features and topics, all presented by one of the most well-known authors in the dental hygiene field.

This new edition combines a focus on currency, with updated content to reflect new technologies and regulations in this field, as well as coupling the text with the robust and valuable ancillaries you have come to expect from Lippincott, Williams &Wilkins' dental hygiene products.

Covering all necessary topics, this edition also features detailed information on:
--Design and use of advanced periodontal instruments
--Advanced instrumentation techniques
--Instrumentation of dental implants
--Ultrasonic instrumentation with modern precision-thin instrument tips
-- Modifications to ?standard? techniques: hyper-extended joints, standing to work on patient that cannot be placed in a supine (flat) position

It was a good deal but I wish I had known about the water damage on the book because I had pages stuck together and about the access code. I have to pay out of pocket for that it's $40.95, I might as well have bought the book new and saved myself the hassle of pulling the pages apart and paying extra for the access code.
