Practical Periodontal Diagnosis and Treatment Planning offers its readers a
step-by-step guide to diagnosing and planning treatment for periodontal patients
through the latest evidence-based protocols. It summarizes the available scientific
evidence for efficacy and effectiveness and links it to everyday clinical practice
in a concise, user-friendly manner.
Practical Periodontal Diagnosis and Treatment Planning begins with the basics of periodontal diagnosis, following the latest classification by the AAP. Modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors are assessed in detail, emphasizing the treatment planning intricacies associated with each one. The book discusses all presentations of periodontal disease ranging from gingivitis to aggressive periodontitis, highlighting topics such as occlusion, scaling and root planning. The full range of treatment modalities are also presented, providing practical instruction for osseous resective surgery, regenerative and supportive periodontal therapy, and dental implant complication management.
Designed to improve and expand the reader’s repertoire of clinical skills, Practical Periodontal Diagnosis and Treatment Planning provides comprehensive coverage of this core part of periodontal training in a concise, highly illustrated, step-by-step format.
