Since Dr. Branemark presented the osseointegration concept with dental implants, implant dentistry has changed and improved dramatically. The use of dental implants has skyrocketed in the past thirty years. As the benefits of therapy became apparent, implant treatment earned a widespread acceptance. The need for dental implants has resulted in a rapid expansion of the market worldwide. To date, general dentists and a variety of specialists offer implants as a solution to partial and complete edentulism. Implant dentistry continues to advance with the development of new surgical and prosthodontic techniques.
The purpose of Implant Dentistry - The Most Promising Discipline of Dentistry is to present a comtemporary resource for dentists who want to replace missing teeth with dental implants. It is a text that integrates common threads among basic science, clinical experience and future concepts. This book consists of twenty-one chapters divided into four sections.
The first section of the book, Bone Grafting Procedures in Implant Dentistry, includes seven chapters and provides basic information regarding bone physiology and bone grafting procedures.
The second section of the book, Bone-Implant Interface: Biomechanics and Surrounding Tissues, consists of four chapters, and focuses on stress distribution in the jawbone, load transfer along the bone-implant interface and response of the bone/soft tissue around implants.
The third section of this book with six chapters, Implant Surfaces and Clinical Practice, concentrates on bone response to various implant surfaces, implant placement techniques and complications that might be encountered.
The fourth section of the book, Computer-Aided Implant Dentistry and Imaging, consists of four chapters and emphasizes state-of-the-art computer softwares for treatment planning and the value of computer softwares in more predictable implant treatment outcomes. Chapters in this section describe computer-guided implant surgeries, and the importance of computerized tomography in implant dentistry.
Our goal in writing this text is to help elevate and advance the discipline of implant dentistry, and we think that, Implant Dentistry – The Most Promising Discipline of Dentistry, will be a valuable source for dental students, post-graduate residents and clinicians who want to know more about dental implants.
