This innovative text follows a number of clinical cases in great detail, to present the problems they raise and the rationale for the solution adopted. Expert editorial commentary then discusses alternative possible solutions. There is a special section on implant therapy. Great emphasis is placed in particular on the periodontal aspects of the problems raised, but dentists specializing in orthodontics or endodontics will also find much here to shed light on their own specialty.
