Implant Restorations 3rd Edition PDF – A Step-by-Step Guide 2014
22.10 MB PDF
Dental implantology is clearly one of dentistry’s most exciting success stories. I was an invited scientific reviewer at the1982 Toronto Osseointegration Conference where Per-Ingvar Brånemark introduced the osseointegrated implant to North America. At this landmark conference, organized by Professor George Zarb, I was struck by the strong research foundation and the scientific orientation of the speakers. For more than 30 years, dental implantology has continued this strong evidence-based orientation and has achieved unparalleled success. The National Library of Medicine has indexed over 11,000 publications related to dental implants since 1989. The remarkable success rate and longevity of dental implants are well documented with over 600 implant-related randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses indexed by the National Library of Medicine. These clinical studies are supported by over 1800 animal studies.
Critical to the success of implants, however, are the clinical skills, the timing, and the coordination of the complex implant procedure. In this text, Dr. Drago has translated the enormous basic science and clinical research knowledge into practical step-by-step clinical procedures that can be implemented in a private practice setting. Detailed knowledge of the complex coordination of procedures, staff, and referrals for implant success is provided. This textbook, which is rich with clinical pictures and figures, will serve as an invaluable resource for the clinician, the office staff, the technician at the dental lab, and the referral team.
This text’s author, Dr. Carl Drago, has been on the ground floor of implantology with over 30 years of clinical, research, and academic experience. He completed his first implant restoration in 1985 and has incorporated the many technological innovations that are critical for the success of implants into his clinical and academic careers. He has held faculty positions in four dental schools; published over 65 implant-related articles, two chapters, and three previous books; and presented over 150 implant courses at dental schools, study clubs, and dental meetings. He has lectured nationally and internationally and has served on a National Institutes of Health review committee on implants. Perhaps most importantly, he has over 30 years of practical clinical experience with implants. These experiences have provided him the insight and clinical judgment necessary to successfully translate the massive amount of basic and clinical implant-related research into a practical guide for the clinician.
