This book describes a methodology for creating biomimetic restorations that harmonize with the remaining natural teeth. The author analyze the methodology for each phase of work, including the diagnosis and treatment planning, the stages of preparation and fabrication, and the cementation of the definitive restoration. All the essential components are covered, including occlusal analysis, soft tissue management, color selection, implant considerations, and guidelines for home maintenance. The merits of a multidisciplinary approach are shown within the a functional esthetic paradigm in which the prosthodontist, surgeon, orthodontist, and dental technician work as a close-knit team to ensure a predictable and reproducible result.
Volume 1: Esthetic Analysis: A Systematic Approach to Prosthetic Treatment
Advances in technology and biomaterials have dramatically expanded the possibilities for esthetic optimization in restorative dentistry. Too often, however, such treatment focuses exclusively on the dental area and fails to consider the overall facial composition. This easy-to-read text provides the clinician with a systematic approach to facial evaluation during esthetic treatment planning. Separate chapters guide the reader to an understanding of the esthetic parameters involved in facial, dentolabial, phonetic, dental, and gingival analysis. Each chapter presents prosthetic considerations and applications that allow the clinician to formulate an optimal treatment plan based on the individual clinical situation of the patient. Also provided is an esthetic checklist that allows the clinician to apply the principles described in the text to everyday practice. Amply illustrated, this text is an invaluable tool for all clinicians practicing esthetic and restorative dentistry.
Volume 2: Prosthetic Treatment: A Systematic Approach to Esthetic, Biologic and Functional Integration
Fradeani, Mauro/ Barducci, Giancarlo
This much-anticipated book presents the procedural phases required to achieve optimal results in the esthetic rehabilitation of patients in need of fixed prostheses. Communication between the clinician and the technician, which is essential to the esthetic, biologic, and functional integration of the prosthetic rehabilitation, is highlighted through a step-by-step presentation of all clinical and laboratory procedures. Chapters demonstrate methods to obtain accurate facebow recordings, impression materials and techniques, fabrication of provisional restorations, and incorporation of interdisciplinary therapies for ideal comfort and esthetics. All of this information is transferred to the final restorations, which should provide patients with long-term prosthetic solutions exhibiting appropriate fit, form, and function. Hundreds of full-color clinical photographs and detailed illustrations accompany each treatment phase and situation described. This beautiful book picks up where Volume 1 ended and delivers its message with equal clarity and precision.

To achieve the long-lasting esthetic and functional results displayed in this clinical masterpiece, one must attend to the myriad details associated with each phase of treatment. Designed for a new generation of visually oriented learners, the book presents step-by-step clinical procedures that unfold like the frames of a film, so that readers may “watch” at their own pace and pause as necessary to contemplate these fine details. This experience will spark the curiosity, creativity, and imagination of even the most veteran surgeon.
A Patient-Oriented Strategy: Planning | Treatment Procedures | Longevity | Esthetics | Function | Dental Technology
Wolfart, Stefan / Contributors: Harder, Sönke / Reich, Sven / Sailer, Irena / Weber, Volker
While a wealth of specialist literature is available on the surgical aspects of implant dentistry, there is no comprehensive, systematic textbook on the implant-supported prosthodontic rehabilitation of the patient – which is the true goal of almost every implant treatment.
Chang, Ting-Ling / Orellana, Daniela / Beumer III, John
In the 1960s, Professor F. J. Kratochvil recognized the importance of biomechanics in removable partial denture (RPD) design and used these principles to develop a new design philosophy. This “RPI system”—a clasp assembly consisting of a rest, a proximal plate, and an I-bar retainer—changed how clinicians approach partial denture design and is now used throughout the world. This textbook provides an overview of Kratochvil’s design philosophy and the basic principles of biomechanics it is based upon. Topics include components of RPDs and their functions, design sequences for maxillary and mandibular RPDs, and techniques for surveying and determining the most advantageous treatment position. A chapter dedicated to digital design and manufacturing of RPD frameworks highlights new technology in this emerging field. Additional topics include optimizing esthetic outcomes through attachments and rotational path RPDs as well as applying the RPI system to patients with maxillofacial defects. The authors provide illustrations of clinical cases throughout the book as well as an illustrated glossary of prosthodontic terminology. This textbook will prepare students and general practitioners to design and fabricate a biomechanically sound RPD framework for just about any dental configuration they encounter.
Clinical and Laboratory Technique for Class I/II/III with Aesthetics
Abe, Jiro / Iwaki, Kenji / Sudo, Tetsuya / Kokubo, Kyoko
The “Suction-Effective Mandibular Complete Denture Fabrication Technique” advocated by Dr. Jiro Abe has reached the common sense area by the success of many clinicians who learned this technique all over the world. And now, attention is focused on the application of this technique to refractory cases. Therefore, in this book, as well as the basis of the mandibular suction effective technique, Angle’s Class 2, Class 3 commentary on how to cope with difficult cases. It also refers to the production of aesthetic complete dentures. This is the essential book for dental physicians/ dental technicians who engaged in complete denture treatment.
Minimally invasive – esthetic – reliable
Nowadays, single-retainer metal-ceramic and all-ceramic resin-bonded fixed dental prostheses (RBFDPs) often present a truly minimally invasive alternative to singletooth implants or other conventional prosthetic methods. Their excellent clinical outcome has been proven by several recently published long-term studies.
This book fulfils the need for an up-to-date extensive evidence-based text encompassing didactic and clinical fields relevant to occlusion and oral rehabilitation that reflects changing paradigms, concepts, new clinical disciplines and expanding therapeutic options.
Science & Art
Tooth Preparations: Science & Art by Prof. Clovis Pagani and co-authors is a fully illustrated guide on tooth preparations, a fundamental part of daily dental practice. It contains essential theory and sound practice, including more than 700 high-quality 3D images. The most current concepts on tooth preparations for indirect restorations are covered, with a focus on biological care, preservation in operative procedure, and precision. The book is divided into eight chapters, covering topics such as restorative planning; state-of-the-art principles, sequences, and tools for preparations; intra- and extracoronal restorations; compromised teeth; adhesive milled restorations; minimally invasive preparations; and preparations for CAD/CAM restorations. This book provides a clear and objective outline of different conservative preparation designs indicated for a variety of clinical situations and is an indispensable addition to the collection of all restorative dentists.
Rodrigues, Antonio H. C.
Treatment planning is commonly considered one of the most important phases of any dental treatment and vital for achieving successful long-term results. However, most dental schools do not offer courses exclusively designed for comprehensive planning, and comprehensive planning is rarely discussed at scientific meetings because it is considered a basic topic that practitioners should already understand. This knowledge gap leaves practicing clinicians with few options beyond using their own intuition to solve problems, which is highly unpredictable. Therefore, this book presents clinical guidelines for planning treatments in restorative dentistry and outlines a clear, objective, and simple thinking process that can be easily applied in daily practice, essentially providing the reader with a roadmap to be used as a reference from the very initial procedures until final restorative treatment. Part 1 describes how to identify existing problems by gathering, organizing, and analyzing information obtained during clinical examination. Examination checklists and forms are included to ensure that no important information is left out during the evaluation process. Part 2 focuses on providing solutions to identified problems via restorative treatment options, highlighting the use of implant-supported restorations in the treatment of both partially and completely edentulous arches. Part 3 details how to present treatment options to the patient and includes aspects related to patient education, treatment plan presentation, and obtaining informed consent from the patient. Altogether, this book will transform the way you treatment plan your cases.
