Implant dentistry has come a long way since Dr. Branemark introduced the osseointegration concept with endosseous implants. The use of dental implants has increased exponentially in the last three decades. As implant treatment became more predictable, the benefits of therapy became evident. The demand for dental implants has fueled a rapid expansion of the market. Presently, general dentists and a variety of specialists offer implants as a solution to partial and complete edentulism. Implant dentistry continues to evolve and expand with the development of new surgical and prosthodontic techniques.
The aim of Implant Dentistry: A Rapidly Evolving Practice, is to provide a comtemporary clinic resource for dentists who want to replace missing teeth with dental implants. It is a text that relates one chapter to every other chapter and integrates common threads among science, clinical experience and future concepts. This book consists of 23 chapters divided into five sections.
The first section of the book, Oral Anatomy, Osseointegration Concept, and Implant Surfaces, includes four chapters and presents basic information regarding oral anatomy, bone physiology, and bone response to various and enhanced implant surfaces.
The second section of the book, Biomechanics in Implant Dentistry, consists of four chapters, and helps readers better understand stress distribution in the jawbone, load transfer along the bone-implant interface, and implant stability.
The third section of this book with five chapters, Computer-aided Implant Dentistry, and Digital Imaging, concentrates on specific state-of-the-art computer software (NobelGuide) for treatment planning, and the value of computer software in more predictable implant placement. Chapters in this section describe the clinical application of digitally-engineered dental implants, computer-guided surgeries, and intuitive surgical navigation system in implant dentistry.
The fourth section of the book consists of six chapters, Clinical Applications of Implants, and considers variables affecting implant treatment outcomes, soft tissue management for more esthetic results, and implants supporting facial prostheses.
The last section of this book, Risk Factors and Complications in Implant Dentistry, consists of four chapters and focuses on risk factors that need to be considered before implant treatment, complications that might be encountered, and how to avoid/manage these complications.
We believe that, Implant Dentistry: A Rapidly Evolving Practice, will be a valuable source for dental students, post-graduate residents, general dentists and specialists who want to know more about dental implants.
