Over 1500 illustrations (full-color photos, radiographs, tables, flowcharts, boxes) in the book beautifully illustrate the details of specific conditions and treatments.
Though the basic concepts remain the same, the sections on Toothbrush design, Dentifrices and Chemical plaque biofilm control with oral rinses in the chapter 'Plaque Biofilm Control' have been totally revamped to include more details for better understanding. Additionally, the classification of Chemical plaque control agents which was not there in earlier editions has also been included.
Since the book is targeted at UG students, only the pertinent and basic concepts of Implantology have been retained in print form, the rest have been made available online.
Comprehensive coverage includes the etiology and treatment of periodontal diseases, the relationship between periodontal disease and systemic health, and oral implant dentistry
