"In this book, the authors blend scientific knowledge and practical experience to provide a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macrosurgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented in the book are explained step-by-step in meticulously illustrated case examples with large, exquisite images. Each case example also includes an illustrated armamentarium of the materials and instruments necessary for the practical implementation of the microsurgical procedure. The book concludes with instructions on how to manage all major complications for each procedure."--Publisher.

An Evidence-Based Guide to Prognosis and Treatment
Author: Khadija Amine
Publisher: Springer Nature
This book is an evidence-based guide to periodontal root coverage that provides up-to-date information on the etiology of gingival recession defects, prognostic factors relating to the defect, patient, or operator, and surgical techniques. Attention is drawn to critical elements in the execution of surgical procedures that can impact on outcomes. In order to ensure that the guidance reflects the highest level of evidence, the authors have undertaken an exhaustive literature search of the four main electronic databases (MEDLINE/PubMed, Cochrane Library, ScienceDirect, and EBSCOhost) for studies on root coverage, including randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and network meta-analyses. The aim is to supply readers with a truly reliable source of knowledge that will help them to navigate this complex field, in which numerous surgical procedures have been described, with great variability in clinical and statistical outcomes. The book will be of value to all who wish to improve their understanding of gingival recession defects and the techniques to achieve root coverage that offer the best long-term results.
Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery provides the qualified and trainee periodontist with a pragmatic approach to mucogingival plastic surgery, imparting knowledge and expertise through its step-by-step examination of the actual clinical requirements of each procedure. The book focuses on the increasingly requested esthetic procedures such as crown lengthening and root coverage, but it also deals with other mucogingival operations, such as hard and soft pre-prosthetic and pre-implant ridge augmentation. Uniquely, there is also a focus on the burgeoning field of periodontal microsurgery, and the techniques and methods learned from other branches of microsurgery are applied to realities of dentistry, for enhanced soft tissue results.
This definitive resource offers a complete look at the practice of periodontics, from theories and concepts to practical clinical applications. It embraces a vision of periodontology and implant denistry for today's dental practice that simultaneously expands horizons to meet the needs of patients in the future. It features a unique approach that stresses the role of diagnosis and treatment in controlling infection and establishing an oral environment that is conductive to the patient's well-being. Guided by a firm understanding of the pathobiology of periodontal disease and other oral infections, this book details new knowledge in the field of periodontal medicine, nonsurgical care, periodontal surgery, oral plastic and reconstructive surgical techniques, and dental implant therapy.
The most widely used periodontics text, Carranza's Clinical Periodontology provides both print and online access to basic procedures as well as the latest in advanced procedures and techniques in reconstructive, esthetic, and implant therapy. Not only does this book show how to do periodontal procedures, it describes how to best manage the outcomes and explains the evidence supporting each treatment. Written by leading experts Michael Newman, Henry Takei, Perry Klokkevold, and Fermin Carranza, along with a pool of international contributors, this edition also discusses the close connection between oral health and systemic disease. A new Expert Consult website includes the entire, fully searchable contents of the book, and takes learning to a whole new level with content updates, videos, a drug database, and much more. Comprehensive coverage describes all aspects of periodontics in a single volume, including periodontal pathology, the etiology of periodontal diseases, the relationship between periodontal disease and systemic health, treatment of periodontal diseases, oral implantology, supportive treatment, and ethics, legal, and practical matters. Problem-solving, scenario-based learning opportunities use well-documented case reports to help you learn both basic and advanced procedures and techniques. 'Speed to competence' is enhanced with access to print, online, and mobile platforms. A unique approach combines evidence-based decision-making, science transfer, and classification/nomenclature throughout every chapter. A one-of-a-kind Genetic Factors and Periodontal Disease chapter examines the role of genetic factors in gum disease. In-depth information serves as an excellent foundation in preparing for the National Board Dental Exam. Expert Consult website offers fast, reliable online access to advanced material, videos, an image collection, a drug database, interactive flash cards, multiple-choice test questions, interactive references, and Pathology Consult -- plus, the entire contents of the book are fully searchable. Find core information in the book; additional, advanced information is provided online. Consult your book from any computer, anywhere in the world, for the entire life of this edition. Keep current with regular updates of the latest periodontal news and information. Follow links from biographical citations to the corresponding MEDLINE abstracts. See a comprehensive library of pathology photos. Coverage of the latest advances includes the emerging link between periodontal disease and systemic health. Full-color illustrations depict the newest developments in surgical technology. A new Multidisciplinary Approach to Dental and Periodontal Problems chapter discusses the importance of collaborative care in the practice of periodontics. Etiology of Periodontal Diseases (Part 4) provides a more comprehensive background in periodontal anatomy, physiology, and pathogenesis.
Surgical Essentials of Immediate Implant Dentistryprovides a definitive text on this important treatmentmodality. Assisting readers to make sense of the variousclinical techniques and protocols, Beagle discusses the availableunderlying evidence to provide a practical, comprehensive andnavigable aid to attaining a thorough understanding of this complexand highly relevant subject. All aspects of immediateplacement of endosseous implants are clearly and scientificallydiscussed, enabling the reader to survey the entire subject area,fusing clinical guidance with scientific discussion. Surgical Essentials of Immediate Implant Dentistry takespre-operative risk assessment and indications and contraindicationsfor immediate loading as its logical starting point. It thenproceeds to examine the treatment of infected sites, extractionsite healing, methods of extraction, surgical protocol, andfinishes with a discussion of complications. Surgical Essentials of Immediate Implant Dentistry will finda ready place within libraries of oral and maxillofacial surgeons,periodontists and prosthodontists and will provide all dentistswith an interest in implant dentistry with a useful and welcomecompanion to this expanding area of clinical practice and research.
