Essentials of Clinical Periodontology and Periodontics
Periodontology is the study of the supporting structures of teeth (gums, bones and cement-like substance that hold the teeth, and the periodontal ligament); and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect them.
This fourth edition has been fully revised to provide dental students with the most recent advances in periodontology. Beginning with an introduction to the normal periodontium and classification and epidemiology of periodontal diseases, the following chapters provide in depth discussion on the diagnosis and treatment of different types of periodontal disease.
In addition to extensive referencing and numerous clinical photographs, diagrams and tables, this comprehensive guide includes a DVD demonstrating procedures in periodontal surgery.
