This seminal book articulates a new paradigm in prosthodontic practice documenting a radical shift in clinical focus toward a more biologic and patient-centered approach. Drawing on 25 years of collective knowledge and experience, the authors guide readers through each step of this comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to patient care. This book centers on diagnosis and clinical decision making for prosthetic rehabilitation, which demands equal consideration of patientsí systemic, psychologic, and functional needs as well as basic knowledge of the other disciplines of dentistry. With impressive supporting documentation from the literature, the authors outline a systematic approach to evidence-based prosthodontics. Restorative dentists at all levels will be eager to embrace this innovative approach to patient care.
