Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery, Second Edition builds on the success of the first edition to provide the qualified and trainee periodontist with an essential guide to the clinical requirements and step-by-step procedures of periodontal plastic surgery. The book retains its emphasis on increasingly requested esthetic procedures such as crown lengthening and root coverage, but also deals with other mucogingival operations such as hard and soft pre-prosthetic and pre-implant ridge augmentation. Also included in this edition are new developments on esthetic and morphometric evaluation of the periodontium, enamel matrix derivative, minimally invasive surgery, smile design, lip repositioning, and facial esthetic surgery. Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery begins by outlining the development of periodontal plastic surgery and the factors, chiefly periodontal health, that affect surgical outcomes. Periodontal microsurgery is then introduced, with a step-by-step description of the surgical procedures with their expected outcome. Each operation is taken in turn, explaining the techniques used and the instrumentation required, and every step is illustrated with an abundance of clinical photographs. Key features: Additional clinical photographs to illustrate procedures Brings together periodontal and plastic surgery expertise Retains the popular step-by-step format for quick and clear reference
