Each case begins with a short description of the initial patient presentation and the learning objectives and goals the subsequent case discussion will demonstrate. This is accompanied by relevant medical and dental histories, notes on extra-oral and soft tissue examination and a thorough list of clinical findings, all presented in bulleted from to facilitate ease of learning. Clinical decision making factors are then discussed in detail, well illustrated with multiple clinical photos showing progressive stages of treatment. Cases conclude with review questions and relevant literature citations supporting each answer.
Ideal for practitioners and students alike, Clinical Cases in Prosthodontics is the ultimate resource linking evidence-based research to every-day application.
