This expansive textbook covers a broad range of topics to prepare aspiring periodontists for exams as well as serving as a guide or reference for more senior practitioners. Concepts are explained in language simple enough for students but technical enough to communicate the important points and subtleties of the topic. Over 100 vocabulary words are clearly defined and explained in context to facilitate understanding of the material, and the text is accompanied by a great variety of tables, diagrams, and illustrations to allow readers to visualize the area and provide additional context for the information. The textbook begins with a basic overview of periodontal anatomy, then leads the reader through the process of diagnosis, identifying different diseases and potential risks before obtaining a prognosis and creating a treatment plan. This is followed by over a dozen chapters on various treatment methods from SRP to complex surgery and then maintenance. The book concludes with additional concepts important for young dentists to know, including an overview of relevant medications as well as abnormalities and emergencies that may be encountered in daily practice. Nothing is left out in this handy study guide, and both current students and recent graduates will find it invaluable in beginning their careers.
