8. Success with Tooth-Preserving Surgery
Despite all of the advances that have been made in implantology, many patients still want or need to keep their natural teeth for as long as possible. Tooth-preserving surgery has been performed for hundreds of years, but the last 10 to 15 years have shown a resurgence and a great increase in knowledge regarding these techniques. The aim of this book is to present modern methods of tooth-preserving surgery so clinicians can expand the range of treatments offered in daily practice or to bring them up to date. This volume is not intended as a textbook, but rather as an illustrated atlas and reference work. Each surgical technique is systematically described with indications and contraindications, step-by-step surgical procedure featuring case examples, as well as prognosis and potential complications. Armed with knowledge of methods old and new, clinicians can evaluate whether their patients’ teeth—even potentially hopeless teeth—might still be preserved.
