Details about Misch’s Contemporary Implant Dentistry 4th edition
Misch’s Contemporary Implant Dentistry 4th edition PDF free download – In the fourth edition of Contemporary Implant Dentistry, the underlying theme of past editions is clearly maintained with respect to the science-based concept of implant dentistry. This new edition is a comprehensive overview of all surgical aspects of implant dentistry, which include eight sections and 42 chapters. Each chapter in this book is specifically written to be related to all other chapters in the text with the concept of consistent and predictable care as the priority. The fourth edition has nearly tripled in size from the first edition written in the early 1990s. New chapters on treatment planning, implant surgery, pharmacology, medical evaluation, immediate placement and immediate loading, bone grafting techniques, Botox and dermal fillers, and the treatment of peri-implant disease have been added to this fourth edition.
The first part of the fourth edition Contemporary Implant Dentistry is related to the scientific basis for dental implants. It presents the rationale for the use of dental implants as inert replacements for missing teeth and why biomechanics play such a significant role in the treatment planning process. A comprehensive outline of the terminology is explained with clear and concise examples. Science based research is used as the basis for discussing implant design and biomaterials, along with the physiologic bone response to these materials.
The second part of this book discusses the biomechanical properties which relate to the dental implant process. The pioneering stress theorem concepts postulated by Dr. Carl Misch are the basis for these chapters as the various force factors which dental implants are exposed to are presented. The effects of these forces along with how different implant surfaces relate to the stresses are discussed in detail.
The third part of Contemporary Implant Dentistry provides information concerning the related basic sciences of oral implantology. The medical evaluation chapter details medical conditions and medications which have direct and indirect effects on the short and long-term success of dental implants. The radiographic evaluation chapter allows the reader to have a comprehensive understanding of normal anatomy as well as anatomic and pathologic variants related to dental implantology. An updated pharmacology chapter encompasses all prophylactic and therapeutic medications related to pre- and postoperative care of dental implants. And lastly, applied anatomy of the head and neck is discussed with an overview on possible infectious episodes that may result from dental implant treatment.
The fourth part of Contemporary Implant Dentistry is based upon all aspects of the treatment planning process. The pioneering classifications from Dr. Carl Misch including available bone, prosthetic options, key implant positions and bone density are updated. A new chapter added to this section details the use of interactive cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) in the treatment planning process. Valuable treatment planning concepts are discussed with a generic protocol for the use of CBCT.
The fifth part of Contemporary Implant Dentistry discusses generalized treatment planning concepts related to anatomical regions within the oral cavity. Single , multiple, and fully edentulous treatment planning principles are presented according to anatomic areas in the anterior and posterior maxilla and mandible. The edentulous treatment planning process for fixed versus removable prostheses are compared with respect to anatomic areas in the maxilla and mandible.
The sixth part of Contemporary Implant Dentistry is dedicated to the implant surgery process. A new chapter related to surgical techniques entails basic surgical principles and protocols, as well as the armamentarium required in the field of oral implantology. Various surgical protocols are discussed related to the specific anatomy in the maxilla and mandible. In addition, a full array of possible complications of implant surgery with respect to etiology, management, and prevention is presented. And lastly, new classifications and protocols related to immediate implant placement surgery along with immediate loading techniques are explained in science- and research-based techniques.
The seventh part of Contemporary Implant Dentistry discusses all aspects of soft and hard tissue rehabilitation. A detailed chapter explains guidelines and techniques for atraumatic extraction and socket grafting. A new chapter specifically discussing the available bone substitutes and membranes, with advantages and disadvantages based on science and the latest research is presented. In addition, updated and comprehensive bone grafting chapters on guided tissue regeneration, maxillary sinus augmentation, intraoral bone grafts, and extraoral techniques are included in this part. And lastly, a new chapter related to the use of Botox and dermal fillers is added to this section which includes the use for esthetic and functional aspects of oral implantology.
The last section of Contemporary Implant Dentistry is related to the postoperative care, specifically the treatment of peri-implant disease with an emphasis on treatment protocols. The last chapter includes a detailed protocol and treatment techniques on the maintenance of dental implants.
