Minimally Invasive Dental Implant Surgery presents a new clinical text and atlas focused on cutting edge and rapidly developing, minimally invasive treatment modalities and their applications to implant dentistry. Centered on progress in imaging, instrumentation, biomaterials and techniques, this book discusses both the “how to” as well as the “why” behind the concept of minimally invasive applications in implant surgery.
Drawing together key specialists for each topic, the book provides readers with guidance for a broad spectrum of procedures, and coalesces information on the available technologies into one useful resource. Minimally Invasive Dental Implant Surgery will be a useful new guide to implant specialists and restorative dentists seeking to refine their clinical expertise and minimize risk for their patients.
