Atlas of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Periodontal Surgery 3rd Edition PDF Free Download
Periodontology is both an art and science; as practiced daily, however, it is predominantly a surgical specialty. Although the major periodontal textbooks contain surgical sections, their general nature and scope do not allow for an in-depth analysis of any one specific area. It is for this reason that this text is devoted solely to the art of periodontics and designed for the student, general practitioner, and specialist. Each procedure has been illustrated and laid out in a step-by-step fashion. Clinical examples have been used secondarily only to supplement illustrations. The descriptive nature of the text is meant to be both brief and simple.Each chapter presents indications, contraindications, advantages, disadvantages, and related problems for each procedure. This atlas incorporates most of the general techniques and concepts’ that are outlined in the major textbooks. It can, therefore, easily be used as a supplement to any of these textbooks. In the course of writing this text, careful attention has been paid to faithfully describing the procedures as they were outlined originally, as well as attempting to give credit to their originators. Any oversights are unintentional and would gladly be corrected in the future. In this regard credit must be given to Glickman’s Clinical Periodontology for serving as the model to base the drawings of gingivectomy on and Lindhes: Clinical Periodontology for serving as a guide for the chapter on furcations. I would like to thank my colleagues Edward Allen, Raul Caffesse, Jose Carvalho, Giovanni Castellucci, David Garber, Barry Jaye, and Edwin Rosenberg for their clinical contributions;Mark Hirsh,Mayer Liebman, and Peter Ferrigno for their helpful suggestions; and my assistants Jeanne McCormack, Rebecca Mugherini, Christine Roberts, and Judith Cohen for their help.
