About this book


This book describes practical, contemporary, and evidence-based surgical approaches for the treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the periodontium, including advanced forms of periodontal disease, gingival recession, and complex cases requiring interdisciplinary management. The book opens by identifying key considerations in periodontal surgery, for example with regard to diagnosis and prognosis, and by presenting decision trees that will be useful in daily practice. Cutting-edge resection and regeneration techniques for the treatment of periodontitis and mucogingival surgical procedures for the management of soft tissue deficiencies are then described and illustrated in detail, highlighting important tips and tricks as well as potential difficulties and complications. The final part of the book is devoted to interdisciplinary care, which is of key importance when periodontal surgery is indicated in the management of cases requiring orthodontic, endodontic, and restorative therapy. Advances in Periodontal Surgery will be of value for practitioners at all levels of experience as well as for students entering the field.
