Medicine: general issues
In spite if improvements in oral health, there will always be a significant number of people who lose all their teeth. As people live longer and total tooth loss occurs later, successful provision of complete dentures is increasingly challenging, and managing the transition from the natural to the artificial dentition has become more critical. The fourth edition of this well established and highly regarded textbook has been completely updated to reflect these changes. Primarily aimed at undergraduate dental students, "Prosthetic Treatment of the Edentulous Patient" will also be of value to all those, including dental technicians, who are faced with solving the problems of complete denture treatment in dental practice.
Adops a flexible approach to accommodate the variation found in edentulous patients.
Stresses the critical importance of good communication between clinician and dental technician.
Emphasises care of the elderly and the value of holistic treatment.
Includes many photographs and clear line drawings.
Sections on clinical audit at the end of each clinical chapter.
Updated and restructured text and references.
Emphasises evidence-based treatment.
The fourth edition includes a new foreword written by Professor Per-Olof Glantz, Vice-Chancellor, Malmo University Sweden.
In spite of improvements in oral health, there will always be a significant number of people who lose all their teeth. Furthermore, as people are living longer, complete denture work has become more challenging and managing the transition from a pre-edentulous to an edentulous condition has become more critical.
The fourth edition of this established textbook for dental undergraduates and postgraduates has been completely updated to reflect these changes. More emphasis has been placed on care of the elderly and how to achieve better communication between clinicians and dental technicians. More details of clinical techniques have been included, with a new section on the self assessment of clinical work. The text has been completely revised to take into account the results of research over the last ten years.
