Bone loss is still a major issue that dentists encounter, but it is a complication that can be prevented. By combining clinical experience with peer-reviewed scientific evidence, the author of this book has put together a guide that any implant specialist will find invaluable to prevent bone loss in their patients. Different strategies are presented that can be used to achieve zero bone loss years after treatment. Because successful treatment depends on both the surgical and prosthetic components, the book is divided into two parts, each focusing in depth on what must be done in each phase to promote bone stability. Case presentations detail many types of clinical situations, implant choices, and prosthetic solutions, all backed by evidence-based clinical studies that have proven success. 1,231 illustrations Contents: Section I: Surgical Concepts 1.

The Complete Dentist Manual: The Essential Guide to Being a Complete Care Dentist 1st Edition (2017) (PDF) by Dr. Peter E Dawson
Complete Dentistry vs. "Usual and customary" Most dentists typically do not know what they do not know; so they go on practicing “usual and customary” dentistry without ever knowing how good their practices could be. This text is a politically incorrect “tell it like it is” exposure of why so many practices fall short of the satisfaction and rewards that predictably successful dentistry provides. A true clinicians manual, every chapter is based on long-term observation of thousands of patients using objective criteria for “complete” examinations, comprehensive treatment planning, patient communication and successful practice management for exceptional patient care. The contribution of practicing faculty members with experience in teaching thousands of dentists, laboratory technicians and staff members, makes the text an easily understood venue for fulfilling the stated goal of The Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Study: We love to make good dentists even better.
