He covers surgical procedures and specific diagnoses and treatment for the partial and complete edentulous jaw; information on medical evaluation, applied anatomy, bone physiology, pharmacology, biomechanics, and biomaterials; soft and hard tissue rehabilitation; and long-term evaluation and maintenance, with many illustrations. This edition has new chapters on treatment planning, bone grafting, and implant surgery, and new coverage of key implant positions and number, ideal implant surgery, fixed mandibular treatment plans, extraction socket and barrier membrane bone grafts, sinus pathology and complications of sinus grafts, immediate loading for a single tooth, and partially edentulous and completely edentulous patients. Information on indications and contraindications for rationale of biomechanical treatment plans has been updated, as has information on the layered approach to bone grafting, autograft block bone grafting, soft tissue surgery, and implant esthetics and maintenance.
