Bone loss remains a serious issue that dentists encounter, but it’s a complication which will be prevented. By combining clinical experience with peer-reviewed scientific evidence, the author of this book has put together a guide that any implant specialist will find invaluable to stop bone loss in their patients. Different strategies are presented which will be wont to achieve zero bone loss years after treatment.
Because successful treatment depends on both the surgical and prosthetic components, the book is split into two parts, each focusing thorough on what must be wiped out each phase to market bone stability. Case presentations detail many sorts of clinical situations, implant choices, and prosthetic solutions, all backed by evidence-based clinical studies that have proven success.
