This is an updated new edition

The content from our 1st edition has been largely updated; some has been restructured.

The most considerable change are „evidence boxes“ which the author included. He summarized systematically important reviews. There are also a lot of 4-c clinical photos now whereas the previous edition had mainly graphics and just a few b/w photos.
The previous edition was a 2-color book only.

All the relevant information clear, to the point, and easy to access."A concise overview of current concepts in periodontology
"The author has identified a need for up-to-date information to be made available as a compendium to standard textbooks in periodontology, and [succeeds] in fulfilling the stated aims of the book." Stephen Chen, Australian Orthodontic Journal

Periodontology The Essentials provides readers with up-to-date information on the anatomy and physiology of the oral cavity as well as the latest methods for diagnosis, prevention, and therapy of periodontal disease. It is specifically designed to help busy dental professionals give their patients the highest level of care. Throughout this book the author stresses the important connections between periodontal disease and the patient's overall health, focusing on preventive care and the consequences of treatment.

Key Features of the Second Edition:
- Expanded and revised coverage, lavishly illustrated by more than 300 four-color photos and drawings
- Updated chapters throughout
- Evidence boxes giving summaries of clinical trials, meta-analyses and other studies, with graded assessment of the findings
- Discussion of the long-suspected association between systemic and periodontal diseases

This book is a remarkably fresh text on the fundamentals of periodontology that will serve as a scientifically grounded yet practical clinical tool for students of dentistry and dental hygiene, private practitioners, hygienists, and periodontists alike.
