failure in the restored dentition management and treatment

failure in the restored dentitionby michael d. wise & anthony laurie

few people in britain have made a greater contribution to postgraduate education in dentistry than michael wise.
this book is a distillation of his teaching in restorative dentistry and how he sets about treating patients. the author’s appeal to the general practitioner is obvious since, although he is regarded as a specialist in his field, he is still a dedicated general practitioner and quickly relates to their problems. to say that his book is comprehensive would be an understatement; the reader will find a well from which to draw information and guidance for a long time ahead.
the author’s approach is always to assess problems in depth before any form of treatment is started. this philosophy, as he rightly says, can save much grief and argument later.

prosthodontics is one of the major branches of dentistry which deals with making of complete and partial dentures to replace the lost all or few natural teeth. it also deals with obturators and maxillofacial prosthesis to correct the deformities following major surgery on oral cavity and face. all of this is science as well as art that mean one’s skill also plays an important role for the success of the task undertaken. the popular saying “a thing of beauty is joy forever” is very much true in this branch of dentistry because good looking and functionally satisfactory dentures give lot of satisfaction to both the dentist as well as to the wearer. so “good dentures are a thing of beauty and joy forever”. however, to produce such good looking, functionally satisfactory dentures are a tricky job. that means fundaments must be understood first. this is where the true value of this book is—the book is in five parts: (i) introduction—4 chapters, (ii) laboratory procedures for complete dentures—7 chapters, (iii) clinical procedures for complete dentures—5 chapters, (iv) partial dentures—4 chapters, (v) crowns, bridges and miscellaneous—5 chapters. simple step by step procedures in all the parts are explained in simple language with plenty of drawings, and photographs, will remove all confusions about the tricky work of making dentures. the style of discussing the subject is simply wonderful because it goes to the root of the matter and by giving examples of everyday life, the mind-bogging aspect of the topics are easily understood and made interesting. essentials of prosthodontics is a product of author’s forty years of private dental practice in india and abroad including twenty-four years of teaching experience in different dental colleges in karnataka (india). the book also fulfills the requirements of university syllabus for the purpose of bds examination as well. thus the students and practitioners of dentistry will be immensely benefited by reading this book.

advances in technology and biomaterials have dramatically expanded the possibilities for esthetic optimization in restorative dentistry. too often, however, such treatment focuses exclusively on the dental area and fails to consider the overall facial composition. this easy-to-read text provides the clinician with a systematic approach to facial evaluation during esthetic treatment planning. separate chapters guide the reader to an understanding of the esthetic parameters involved in facial, dentolabial, phonetic, dental, and gingival analysis. each chapter presents prosthetic considerations and applications that allow the clinician to formulate an optimal treatment plan based on the individual clinical situation of the patient. also provided is an esthetic checklist that allows the clinician to apply the principles described in the text to everyday practice. amply illustrated, this text is an invaluable tool for all clinicians practicing esthetic and restorative dentistry.

clinical solving in prosthodontics february 27, 2004

on first impression, this book seems a little lightweight. however having read the book, i discovered there was very good reason for this. some books tend to over complicate and spend too much time on the simple issues, that should be considered basic knowledge. this book is simple and straight to the point. there is very little unnecessary material, whilst the rest is concise and easy to understand.
it covers a wide range of subjects from bleaching (of vital and non vital teeth), to partial denture design to crowns and bridges. one of the highlights of the book is the chapter on failed crown and bridges, a subject not covered as well in other dental books. individual chapters on replacing canines, and upper incisors were also useful.
the text is well accompanied by a variety of illustrations, all relevant to what is being discussed. at the end of each chapter is a short and useful summary of the learning objectives.
overall i found the book to be an outstanding source of information, which was simple to understand and easy to find what you were looking for. i would strongly recommend this book for students as it is an excellent companion to your studies.anand mistry

book description

this second volume in the international “prosthetic rehabilitation” series articulates a thorough, patient-centered approach to prosthodontic restoration that addresses the important psychosocial aspects of oral rehabilitation in addition to sound prosthodontic design and fabrication. placing a strong emphasis on the scientific rigor of clinical decision making, the authors present the principles central to constructing optimal prostheses for patients in various stages of edentulism, including partially edentulous and single-tooth gap situations. every technical phase of rehabilitation is detailed, from the initial clinical examination to fabrication of the definitive restoration and the long-term follow-up. direction is given on tailoring restorative treatments to individual patients, and chapters cover many undervalued aspects of prosthetic care, including management of unfavorable anatomical conditions and common oral syndromes; establishment of optimum interaction between prosthetic retention, stability, and support; and, successful provisionalization. this title provides expert guidance on increasing denture stability, conditioning the soft tissues, and selecting the right denture adhesive rounds out this highly practical and well-illustrated book.

student`s review january 27, 2000

excellent book featuring:

* “picturesque” explaining (almost like a comic book), no clinical photography present though

* step by step instructions how to do it, with every material, bur or other used instrument explained in detail. detail is what is great about this book – you can reconstruct every phase of the procedure to the last detail.

* fluidly written and easily understandable emphasizing the practice with all theoretical knowledge needed provided

overall it is a great book for students which want to get a general knowledge about practice and theory of fixed prosthodontics in dentistry. great beginners and advanced user book. (my mother who is a specialist of prosthodontic find it useful after years and years of practice). only complaint – there were not any real clinical cases and clinical photography.

fundamentals of fixed prosthodontics may 21, 2009

i have the second edition and i love it so much although there is no attractive photos inside but it is very practical for me in clinical study. this time i buy the third edition. it is also kept me irresistible of reading it.

this is not only a recommended text, but also virtually a “must have” for every gp! it works perfectly for both, theory and practice. it works greatly for a student as well.

biomimetic restorative dentistry


pascal magne, dmd, msc, phd, associate professor, primary oral health care division, don and sybil harrington foundation chair of esthetic dentistry, university of southern california school of dentistry

learning objectives:

understand the definition and scientific foundations of the biomimetic principle in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics.
determine the spectrum of indication for indirect bonded restorations.
learn optimization of


the goals of contemporary restorative dentistry and prosthodontics should be (1) the maintenance of the vitality of the teeth to be restored and (2) the maximum preservation of sound tooth structure. the core idea of the biomimetic principle in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics is that the intact tooth in its ideal hues and shades, and perhaps more importantly in its intracoronal anatomy, mechanics and location in the arch, is the guide to reconstruction and determinant of success. the approach is basically conservative and biologically sound. the application of the biomimetic principle involves returning all of the prepared dental tissues to full functional by the creation of a hard tissue bond that allows functional stresses to pass through the tooth, drawing the entire crown into the final functional biologic and esthetic result. unlike traditional alloy restorations and cemented crowns, novel-design indirect composite resin/porcelain adhesive restorations are stress distributors and involve the crown of the tooth as a whole in supporting occlusal force and masticatory function. indirect bonded restorations, also provide the practitioner with a noninvasive and social restorative tool owing to the minimum maintenance costs. one can anticipate considerable improvements such as in the treatment of crown-fractured and worn-down teeth, which should reduce the need for preprosthetic interventions (e.g. root canal therapy and crown-lengthening) and the use of intraradicular posts.

book description

in spite of improvements in oral health, there will always be a significant number of people who lose all their teeth. furthermore, as people are living longer, complete denture work has become more challenging and managing the transition from a pre-edentulous to an edentulous condition has become more critical.the fourth edition of this established textbook for dental undergraduates and postgraduates has been completely updated to reflect these changes. more emphasis has been placed on care of the elderly and how to achieve better communication between clinicians and dental technicians. more details of clinical techniques have been included, with a new section on the self assessment of clinical work. the text has been completely revised to take into account the results of research over the last ten years.

“this textbook is highly recommended to undergraduate students as it is well written, clearly laid out and helpfully illustrated.
the objective of the authors, in providing the clinician with a sound theoretical foundation on which successful clinical skills can be built, has certainly been achieved.
the text should also be of interest to practitioners and those preparing for postgraduate exams.”
dental update“in summation, the authors have achieved their aims and i would recommend this textbook for undergraduates.”

translation of a review from the dutch journal of dentistry

from the back cover

in spite if improvements in oral health, there will always be a significant number of people who lose all their teeth. as people live longer and total tooth loss occurs later, successful provision of complete dentures is increasingly challenging, and managing the transition from the natural to the artificial dentition has become more critical. the fourth edition of this well established and highly regarded textbook has been completely updated to reflect these changes. primarily aimed at undergraduate dental students, prosthetic treatment of the edentulous patient will also be of value to all those, including dental technicians, who are faced with solving the problems of complete denture treatment in dental practice.
key features

  • adops a flexible approach to accommodate the variation found in edentulous patients.
  • stresses the critical importance of good communication between clinician and dental technician.

decent quality book. very understandable, and definitely worth buying.
initially bought this thru amazon itself (thinking that since they’ve got that massive system all together, it would be zero fuss… but apparently they didnt have it in stock yet, so they had to order it in), but they were disgustingly slow so i cancelled that order and got it through one of the “used and new” sellers… and it arrived by the time amazon would have barely even managed to get the order packaged.

textbook of complete dentures, 6th edition, january 11, 2012

this book overall will give you good information as far as making denture for patient, a good reference book. however, the author does not cover lab communication. i would give it a 4 stars if there are some pearls on how to communicate with the lab i.e. tell your lab guy how to process once you have it all done in the clinic.

good for dental students and gps., july 19, 2010

this is book is exactly what it claims to be. i am not disappointed at all.

full color but not advanced, may 12, 2007

has enough detail for most general dentists when you need a reference, and more than enough for the dental student. there is also some discussion of advanced technique in the text that is shown with a colored background, however there does not seem to be much discussion on advanced cases (4 stars). chapters discuss all aspects of most partial denture cases including some maxillofacial prosthetics. i like to learn a lot by looking at pictures. one huge plus this book has is more than 90% full color (5 stars) pictures (more than 900). however i wish the pictures showed how to do procedures in a step by step format. the pictures for the most part just show what things are supposed to look like in the end of a procedure (3 stars). avg stars: 4

a fundamental addition to any comprehensive medical library., february 17, 2011

this is quite honestly more than just a book, it is in certain respects an encyclopedic reference tool for any dental health care practitioner. the photographs and illustrations are exceptional, and the descriptive information is brilliant. anyone interested in the field of dental prosthetics will find this to be a most interesting source of information, and for those involved professionally within the field of prosthodontics, this is no doubt an invaluable professional resource.
