  • All goals and objectives of the American Academy of Periodontology's Vision 2020 program are addressed, highlighting the most up-to-date information on periodontal medicine.
  • Content is organized to coincide with the AAP's Vision 2020 Objectives.
  • Full color illustrations show the tissue colors and provide critical information about diagnosis of disease and assessment of the success or failure of clinical therapy.
  • Information is provided on all forms of nonsurgical and surgical therapies, including dental implant surgery and advanced surgical techniques such as guided bone regeneration, sinus augmentation, and esthetic periodontal surgery.
  • The chapters dealing with mucogingival surgery, resective surgery, and the basic principles of surgery essentially make up a color atlas of periodontal practice.
  • A comprehensive chapter on conscious sedation offers excellent content as an option for patients who want to be "asleep" during involved procedures.
  • Information on when and how to use antibiotics and antimicrobials adds a critical component to the interrelationship between oral and systemic health.
  • No other periodontal reference includes a chapter on electronic dental health records, with highly relevant content as more and more dental practices move toward becoming "paperless" offices.
  • A separate chapter on the role of the dental hygienist in periodontal procedures makes this the perfect reference for in-office education.
  • Information on periodontal instrumentation provides an excellent overview of the instruments that practitioners and their support staff use every day.
