A full-color dental textbook that offers a completely new approach to the study of implant dentistry. In this highly procedural text, each surgical technique is presented clearly and distinctly in a step-by-step fashion. This book is for undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, and continuing education students, as well as for current practitioners who are students of implant dentistry in the broader sense, those who wish to deepen their knowledge and expand their scope of treatment. Whereas most implant dentistry literature tends to focus on complex cases, this book meets the need for instruction that focuses on the safe and predictable cases that comprise the majority of what the typical implant practitioner encounters in practice. Focuses on the safe and predictable example cases that comprise the majority of cases the implant practitioner will encounter in practice Teaches surgical procedures for all accepted implant modalities, from first examination, to diagnosis and treatment planning, to case completion and aftercare Fully explains aftercare, maintenance, how to avoid potential complications and how to remedy treatment failures More than 780 striking illustrations, most in full colour illustrate all surgical procedures and bring the subject matter to life

Book Description :

Covering the latest advances in mini dental implant technology, Mini Dental Implants: Principles and Practice makes it easy to incorporate MDIs into your practice. An illustrated, evidence-based approach shows how MDIs can provide successful outcomes in long-term use and also in shorter-term transitional applications. This success is proven by 20 years of clinical trials and research, showing that the Sendax Mini Dental Implant System can benefit your patients with faster surgery, reduced pain, faster healing, and less risk of infection. Written by noted implant dentistry expert Dr. Victor I. Sendax, this text allows you to offer patients a minimally invasive, immediately functional, and lower-cost alternative to traditional dental implants. Easy-to-understand coverage from different perspectives allows you to access information most applicable to your own practice, and to learn more about the other roles involved in achieving successful outcomes, including the general practitioner, periodontist, oral & maxillofacial surgeon, maxillofacial prosthodontist, orthodontist, and laboratory technician. An advanced approach with evidence-based outcomes clearly demonstrates the success of mini dental implant technology and keeps you on the cutting edge of the science of implantology. Well-known author Dr. Victor I. Sendax is a diplomate, past president of The American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry and The American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and winner of the 2012 AAID Research Foundation Award. Step-by-step instructions show the basic protocol for Sendax MDI insertion and reconstruction. Highly regarded contributors add their expertise to discussions of MDI technology and practice. A discussion of Engineering Assisted SurgeryTM (EASTM) enhances your care by improving diagnosis and 3-D planning, reducing intervention trauma, and improving the standardization of quality and outcomes. Clinician's MDI Forum includes Q & A sections allowing you to quickly find answers to commonly asked questions.
