for patients, seeing is believing

this pictorial atlas illustrates the results achieved by the author over the course of more than 15 years of providing nightguard vital bleaching to his patients. full-color before and after photos demonstrate how this approach has provided a more beautiful smile to a wide range of patients, including those with naturally yellow teeth, white splotches, nicotine or tetracycline stains, a single dark tooth, or existing restorations that no longer match their teeth. these case presentations make this book an invaluable chairside tool for educating and motivating patients and, most importantly, provides them with realistic expectations for the outcome of treatment, perhaps the single most important factor in patient satisfaction.

soft tissue and esthetic considerations in implant therapy


anthony g. sclar, dmd, private practice, miami, florida.

book description

this long-anticipated book presents advanced surgical techniques for preserving and restoring natural dental esthetics in implant therapy. written for the novice and expert alike, each chapter builds on the information in the preceding chapters in a clear, well-illustrated, and easy-to-follow format. following a discussion of the rationale and biologic basis for creating a stable peri-implant soft tissue environment, the author presents a systematic approach to the patient evaluation, including quantification of the positive and negative elements that enhance and detract from an individual s smile; specific surgical maneuvers for managing peri-implant soft tissues, including various innovative flap designs; the surgical and prosthetic protocols of a technique for preserving the natural hard and soft tissue anatomy in patients undergoing tooth removal; soft tissue grafting techniques for augmenting attached tissues around natural teeth and implant restorations; and an innovative technique for reconstructing large-volume hard and soft tissue defects in the anterior maxillary area. the final chapter presents advanced cases that demonstrate the use of these procedures in various situations, along with algorithms to guide the implant surgeon in their selection and sequencing. for those who want to master new techniques for treating esthetic implant patients with a high level of predictability, this book is a must-have.

great book on implantology……, february 21, 2004

…..up to date with recent literature cited. as a senior dental student going into omfs i find it great to use for papers in school or just to expand that good old knowledge of implantology. i’d buy it myself except a little pricey for a poor student!!
