The new edition of this best selling dental textbook has been thoroughly updated to keep abreast ofcurrent knowledge of the disease processes and the role of operative dentistryin their management. Pickard Manual Of Operative Dentistry describes clearly and concisely the indicationsand methods for many common operative and conservative procedures in dentalpractice. Procedures and techniques are illustrated in full colour and whereappropriate, step-by-step sequences are given. Its popularity lies in the factthat it doubles as an atlas and the text is clear and accessible. A newchapter has been added on adhesion and adhesive restorations, since these arenow the first choice for primary lesions for all surfaces and all teeth in themouth. Amalgam is still thoroughly described, but bonding techniques are nowincluded with a shift away from pins where retention is a problem. The diagnosisof failed restorations has been updated in the light of new research andtechniques for refurbishment and repair of restorations are advocated whereappropriate. As in previous editions, the approach is disease and preventionorientated, is problem based and the changes have a research evidence-base.
