Product Description:
Drs. Nevins and Mellonig have gathered an impressive group of contributors for this book on periodontal therapy. The book has 412 pages and 1,235 illustrations and tables. The editors systematically addressed perodontal therapy in 26 chapters that are arranged in logical sequence and that provide readers with documented information consistent with evidence-based research in periodontics.

This book is will written and has outstanding illustrations. The evidence-based theme throughout the book is apparent in all of the therapeutic chapters and gives credence to the procedures advocated by the authors. It is a text that would be very useful to both the student and practitioner in periodontics.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  Not a textbook, September 08, 2004
By Korkud Demirel (Ist. Turkey)
Up to date information with limited scientific background and literature review. However, good quality photos and print makes the book good for understanding and explaining periodontal procedures.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  It is exciting to see the tremendous progress in the field., October 15, 1998
By Margaret J. Fehrenbach, RDH, MS, Educational ... (Seattle, WA)
Initial chapters cover diagnosis, treatment planning, and medically compromised patients. These are followed by chapters on specific procedures, each procedure is covered by both chronological clinical photographs of specific cases, including pre and postsurgical ones, as well as by discussion of the technique, with ample literature sitings about the success level of each. The newest techniques, guided tissue regeneration (GTR) and bone grafts, are also covered, with the final chapter on supportive periodontal care. Figures are used when necessary, along with radiographs, and a few histological slides.

There is not an excessive amount of text, so reading about each procedure is easily accomplished, nor is textbook jargon used. Unlike some surgical textbooks, the photographs have been cleared of debris and the tissue is easily seen. Each photograph has been taken from the same location (or edited to approach this) for ease of viewing, understanding the technique, and comparing of techniques. Each technique is evenly handled as to its success (or failure) based on the research that has been done. The hardback text size is larger than normal so that the font and illustration size is comfortable for reading.

Many of the postsurgical photographs illustrate many of the remarkable successes now possible, especially in grafting. To their credit, each technique, even if it is not all that new, has incorporated the latest in materials and instruments. The chapter on mucogingival considerations for the adolescent patient puts together many concepts not witnessed before; it is a very exciting mixture since it covers both orthodontics and aesthetics to allow a healthy adult periodontium.
