About this book

Introduction

This handbook has been designed for practicing dental clinicians and students, which includes dental hygienists, general dentists, periodontists, and students of dental hygiene and dentistry who are responsible for treating patients with a broad spectrum of periodontal diseases. The book will enable  practicing clinicians and students to successfully meet the challenge of excellent  patient care, by providing , in a concise and simplified format, both classic and contemporary practical measures that address all aspects of non-surgical periodontal disease management. Readers are carefully guided through an extensive body of accumulated knowledge in eight broad chapters which includes: the patient’s involvement in disease control and prevention, the clinician’s instrumentation for the diagnosis and basic treatment of gingivitis/periodontitis along with pharmacotherapeutics and supportive maintenance therapy to ensure long-term success. Numerous illustrations help to bring the presented ideas and suggestions to life and the succinct nature of the text will allow readers to transfer useful information quickly to their own clinical settings.
