This book provides its readers with a structured approach to decision making and case management in oral rehabilitation. It is built around actual patient cases from simple prosthodontics to complex full–mouth reconstructions, demonstrating a formal process by which a diagnosis and treatment plan is reached. Grounded firmly in evidence–based principles, the book also includes a chapter on literature searching in dentistry, which is critical for acquiring a knowledge base for informed decisions in clinical treatment.

Featuring an approach to prosthodontics and oral rehabilitation that is both instructional and practical, Oral Rehabilitation: A Case–Based Approach will help clinicians to develop the necessary skills to make consistent, evidence–based clinical decisions.


  • Presents a case–based process showing how diagnosis and treatment is achieved
  • Covers a range of clinical scenarios from simple to complex presentations
  • Illustrates each case fully, with stages documented by colour photographs
  • Emphasises interdisciplinary management in prosthodontics
  • Accompanied by a DVD containing an illustrative video clip relating to Chapter 6
