Implantology Step-by-Step, a consistently practice-oriented, instruction-based and illustrated technical textbook, has provided guidance and help to a whole generation of dentists venturing into the field of dental implant treatment.
This successful and popular work is now appearing in a fully revised and extended second edition, translated into English. Its author, Christoph Sliwowski, has brought together the treatment of the maxilla and mandible in one volume and has included a chapter on the totally edentulous patient. A wealth of newly included patient reports illustrate novel methods and techniques, replacing any material that has since become obsolete.
What remains is the innovative concept that a variety of baseline situations and degrees of difficulty are taken into account for all clinical situations - from the restoration of single-tooth gaps to the treatment of the edentulous maxilla and mandible with sinus elevation and immediate implants. Important complications are also considered, with causes and solutions. Finally, the author has not shied away from including sample cases with unsatisfactory treatment outcomes, raising the reader's awareness of the special pitfalls of implant treatment.
