This book is a state of the art clinical guide to contemporary materials and techniques for the restoration of individual teeth and implants.
It fully reflects the important developments in the field over the past 15 years, including in particular the shift away from wholesale use of crowns towards adhesive dentistry and less invasive extra-coronal restorations.
The book opens by considering the principles and evidence base relating to the longevity of restorations of teeth and implants.
Importantly, it explains how to ensure “a healthy start” and manage future risks.
Material choice and aesthetic issues are then discussed, before all aspects of the planning and provision of extra-coronal restorations are examined in depth.
The coverage also includes the adaptation of crowns to existing partial dentures. In line with modern dental education, each chapter begins with clinically relevant learning objectives, and helpful clinical tips are highlighted.
The book will be of value for senior dental undergraduates, postgraduates, and practicing dentists and its scientific content will be of interest to dental academics.
This book, designed to meet the needs of clinicians, clearly explains the rationale and technique for the rehabilitation of fully edentulous patients utilizing traditional graftless concepts as well as zygomatic implant strategies when posterior support cannot be achieved by the former means.
Considerations relevant to treatment planning and the biomechanics of immediate loading and zygomatic implants are first discussed. The techniques for placement of traditional tilted and zygomatic implants and for immediate loading of a full arch restoration are then described step by step.
Detailed information and guidance are also provided on the different materials available for full arch restorations, laboratory aspects of the definitive restoration, maintenance of restorations, and management of prosthetic and surgical complications.
The book concludes with a helpful series of clinical cases. Graftless Solutions for the Edentulous Patient is designed particularly for clinicians with experience in placing and restoring dental implants.

Taking its lead from the concept of delivering oral care using a
team approach, this book considers how the whole team can
contribute to providing the very best care and support to each and
every patient. In its practical approach to the subject, the book
identifies methods in which feedback from patients can best be
gathered and the ways in which it can be advantageously utilised.
A whole chapter is devoted to how complaints can be handled,
both to retain satisfied patients and also to drive up standards.
Drawing on the latest research, this book offers a
practical, jargon-free overview of the dentist-patient
relationship, with the aim of creating greater job
satisfaction for the dentist as well as the provision of
better dental care. The book reinforces that pragmatic
approach but adds the advantages of understanding and
applying practical psychological strategies to improve
and underpin it. The central theme of the book is that
dental health care is a two-person endeavour rather than
something that one person does to another.
