Periodontology is the study of the supporting structures of teeth (gums, bones and cement-like substance that hold the teeth, and the periodontal ligament); and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect them.
This textbook is a complete guide to periodontology for dental students. Divided into twelve sections, the book begins with explanations of normal periodontium, classification and epidemiology, aetiology, and pathology of gingival and periodontal diseases.
The following sections cover diagnosis and both surgical and non-surgical treatment methods. A complete chapter is dedicated to implantology and the interdisciplinary link between periodontics and other subspecialties is explained in detail.
Each topic is enhanced by colour-coded boxes highlighting key points, viva voce questions, and suggested further reading as well as high quality clinical photographs, diagrams and tables.
