From the Back Cover
Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery begins by outlining the place and development of periodontal plastic surgery, and the factors, chiefly periodontal health, that affect surgical outcomes. Periodontal microsurgery is then introduced before the step-by-step description of the surgical procedures with their expected outcome. Each operation is taken in turn, explaining the techniques used and the instrumentation required, and illustrating every step with an abundance of clinical photographs. Finally, the book concludes with a discussion of patient selection criteria.
This book will benefit periodontists, dentists, residents and students alike by strengthening understanding of mucogingival surgery through a thorough appreciation of each part of the procedures involved.
