Combining the approaches of preventative and restorative dentistry, this is a revised and updated guide to the clinical techniques and procedures necessary for managing tooth disorders and disease.
- Introduces minimally invasive dentistry as a model to control dental disease and then restore the mouth to optimal form, function, and aesthetics
- Contains several student–friendly features, including a new layout, line drawings and clinical photographs to illustrate key concepts
- Covers fundamental topics, including the evolutionary biology of the human oral environment; caries management and risk assessment; remineralization; principles of cavity design; lifestyle factors; choices between restorative materials and restoration management
- Includes a companion website with self–assessment exercises for students and a downloadable image bank for instructors
