Fundamentals of Periodontal Instrumentation and Advanced Root Instrumentation walking dental hygiene students step-by-step
Fundamentals of Periodontal Instrumentation and Advanced Root Instrumentation, Eighth Edition is an instructional guide to periodontal instrumentation that takes students rom the basic skills – patient positioning, intraoral f nger rests, and basic instrumentation – all the way to advanced techniques – assessment o periodontal patients and instrumentation o the root branches o multirooted teeth, root concavities, and urcation areas. The oremost instructional goal o Fundamentals is to make it easy or students to learn and aculty to teach instrumentation. The eighth edition retains the eatures that have made it the market-leading textbook on periodontal instrumentation and adds new eatures and content organization designed to acilitate learning and teaching.
ONLINE INSTRUCTOR TEACHING RESOURCES
- PowerPoint Slides. The PowerPoint slides were designed so as to be user- riendly or wide variety o so tware versions and equipment.

From an instructional viewpoint, it is important to note that each major instrument classif cation is addressed in a stand-alone module—sickle scalers, universal curets, and area-speci c curets. Each stand-alone module provides complete step-by-step instruction in the use o an instrument classi cation. For example, the module on universal curets provides complete instruction on the use o universal curets. This chapter does not rely on the student having studied the previous module on sickle scalers be ore beginning the universal curet module. This stand-alone module structure means that it is not necessary to cover the instrument modules in any particular order or even to include all o the modules. I sickle scalers, or example, are not part o the school’s instrument kit, this module does not need to be included in the course outline.
