Treatment of dentures, and common diseases of dentures, you will rarely encounter books about this, but in reality a lot of patients with dentures have a problem, and this is the book helps dentists to have the most effective clinical examination and treatment,
With topics ranging from treatment modalities to tooth-supported prostheses to both immediate and complete dentures, this valuable resource gives the basic information necessary to treat the edentulous patient. This edition continues to focus on implant prosthodontics, as more and more people choose to make this simple, effective, affordable option a part of their treatment
As a result, the consequences of an aging edentulous environment or a terminal dentition have been more successfully addressed than ever before and many clinicians even began to forecast the demise of the complete denture technique. Optimal management of the edentulous predicament in virtually all its forms is now seen in a broader and more rational context, and there is clearly still a major ongoing role for complete denture therapy. In fact, the cost effectiveness, simplicity, efficacy, and effectiveness of this treatment technique is virtually universal.
However, longterm adverse sequelae of denture wearing or behavioral problems associated with the experience no longer militate against our traditional efforts to cope with chronic and unsolvable clinical problems. Implant support, be it of the fixed or overdenture variety, has enlarged and enriched the therapeutic scope of a previously limited prosthodontic paradigm. Furthermore, the conviction has reemerged that basic principles of managing edentulism with complete denture fabrication are more necessary than ever, since implant-supported treatment remains an outgrowth of traditional prosthodontic protocols. We have chosen an eclectic approach to the topic and invited leading international educators to join us in articulating a strong case for understanding the edentulous predicament and its management. Our contributors remain committed to optimal patient therapy but never lose sight of the total picture of the biological underpinnings of the edentulous milieu. This is where the twelfth edition’s thrust and novelty lies—an enriched and integrated interpretation of what it means to be edentulous plus ways and means of addressing its consequences.
