New this month, the latest edition of this textbook delves into the principles of periodontal and dental implant therapy, with a focus on accurate diagnoses and well-rounded, pragmatic treatment planning. The reader is guided systematically from risk assessment through minimally invasive therapies to rehabilitation, whether through surgical tissue regeneration or implant therapy. The book has been updated to reflect the complexities of the 2017 International Workshop Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions, explaining the staging and grading system and discussing how to use the classification in clinical practice.

The book takes an evidence-based approach to diagnosis and treatment, and includes a digital workflow for smooth intraoral rehabilitation; practical instructions for periodontal procedures such as osseous resective surgery, regenerative and supportive periodontal therapy and dental implant complication management; analysis of the use of Botox and dermal fillers as an alternative to surgical treatment; the discussion of periodontal disease presentations including occlusion, scaling, and root planing.
