The updated 8th edition of this classic reference provides a visually-oriented presentation of dental macromorphology and evidence-based chronologies of the human dentitions, while reflecting definitive shifts in modern dental practice. New features include an enhanced reader-friendly approach, new color illustrations, and a greater emphasis on clinical applications. A new, interactive CD-ROM offers three-dimensional animations of masticatory movements - including tooth contact relationships and temporomandibular joint movements - that bring the text's illustrations to life. Plus, an interactive mock examination mimics the National Board exam for outstanding review and practice.
- Essential concepts of occlusion relevant to restorative dentistry are covered.
- Evidence-based chronologies of the human dentitions provide research standards for tooth development and eruption.
- Dimensions of teeth from all aspects are considered in relation to space problems and arch size.
- Discussion of bony supporting structures provides information necessary for oral surgery, periodontics, and dental implants.
- Detailed descriptions and illustrated morphologic features of usual/unusual teeth essential for learning biologic variation of tooth morphology.
- Radiographs and pulp chamber and canal morphology in sectioned teeth provide an excellent reference for root canal therapy.
- Clinically useful chronologies show the age of attainment to avoid damage to developing teeth.
- Age prediction chronologies can be used to assess the unknown age of a patient.
- Periodontal therapy is discussed in detail, outlining the relationship of tooth morphology to the periodontium.
- New lifelike color drawings of the right maxillary and mandibular permanent teeth from the mesial, occlusal, distal, lingual and buccal views are featured in the book and on the CD-ROM.
- CD-ROM teaches the evaluation of contours of simulated dental restorations in relation to ideal arch form using Quicktime Virtual Reality.
- An interactive 250 multiple choice question examination on the CD-ROM provides a thorough self-assessment tool.
- Expanded coverage of the development process of the primary and permanent dentitions related to diagnosing potential space problems and malocclusion.
- Thorough discussion of the evaluation of temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders including anatomical illustrations of the nerves and muscles of the head and neck region.
- Appendix of tooth trait categories reviews key information for students.

Focusing on endodontic problem-solving and troubleshooting techniques, this book covers ways to avoid problems throughout the full spectrum of treatment - from diagnosis to posttreatment. In delivering a consistently high level of quality care, this approach follows three steps: how to prevent problems in treatment, how to identify problems that exist or that occur during treatment, and how to manage those problems once they are recognized. This edition offers practical ways to address the most common clinical problems, scenarios, and issues that pose dilemmas for the student or clinician.
- Succinct tables, boxes, and bulleted lists make information easier to find.
- 1,150 illustrations show problem-solving techniques put into practice, allowing for better identification of conditions and treatments.
- Expanded discussion of documentation looks at legal forms and malpractice issues - useful preparation for preventing or dealing with legal situations.
- Concise and contemporary reference lists are included at the end of every chapter.
This text discusses the treatment of the partially edentulous patient with a combination of fixed and removable partial dentures at the advanced level; it is intended to guide general practitioners and graduate students in prosthodontics in creating a quality RPD.
The removable partial denture has always been my special challenge in dentistry. As a clinician, researcher, dental laboratory director, lecturer, and mentor, I have spent almost 35 years trying to come to grips with the complexities of this form of prosthodontic treatment. I would estimate that 20% of partial wearers are more than just a little dissatisfied with their denture. Unlike with the fixed partial denture, the patient has the option of removing the prosthesis at the slightest hint of discomfort, physical or mental. Given the actual state of practice—the dentist does only the occasional partial denture with almost total reliance on the dental laboratory for design as well as construction—I am most pessimistic as to the effect of this, or any other text on the subject. While there are a number of excellent basic texts on the removable partial denture, they are all directed toward the undergraduate dental student. I have not found anything that I can use as an advanced text for the graduate student and study club participant who wishes to pursue this form of therapy at the highest level. After years of being asked if I had ever considered putting my lecture material in written form and protesting that I did not have the time, my partial retirement from the University of Washington School of Dentistry has made my excuses no longer valid. This work is not intended to be a textbook in the classical sense. It is, rather, a monograph on the removable partial denture, written with the expectation that the reader will already have covered the basics of the partial denture and is now ready to take a more sophisticated look at this treatment modality. It does not have a bibliography, and the illustrations consist of drawings that I have placed on countless blackboards over the years in an attempt to make things clear to my students. What follows are my thoughts as they have evolved over these years of practice and teaching in this fascinating area. While I take complete responsibility for the content of this work, I have been aided in the writing by my friend and coworker, Janine Nemerever Coates, who, as program coordinator of the Graduate Program in Prosthodontics, has long stood watch over my faulty grammar and sentence structure. I have also had the help of Dr Alex Shor, presently in our graduate program, who has reviewed the entire book to provide insight and guidance from the eyes of the potential readership. This book is dedicated to my graduate students—past, present, and hopefully future—who provide, on a daily basis, the joy of seeing someone learn. It is also dedicated to my longtime friend and colleague, the eminent functional anatomist, Professor Jean Romerowski of the University of Paris, VII, who has been an inspiration in this matter as in so many other endeavors over the years.

"..the book presents the thoughts of a respected prosthodontist, teacher, and researcher gained through 35 years of practical experience. The text thoroughly covers the topic of removable partial denture prosthodontics. It allows the reader to "pick the brain" of a prosthodontist with over 3 decades of experience. It provokes the knowledgeable reader to reconsider some of the classic teaching in removable partial denture prosthodontics. It stimulates readers to seek an understanding of the principles of removable partial dentures and to strive to provide optimal removable partial denture treatment."
