Plastic-Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery: A Microsurgical Approach
Zuhr, Otto and Hürzeler, Marc
In this stunning book, the authors blend scientific knowledge and practical experience to provide a comprehensive overview of the principles, indications, and clinical techniques of plastic-esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery, focusing especially on minimal soft tissue trauma and maximally perfect wound closure. Microsurgery provides clinically relevant advantages over conventional macrosurgical concepts for regenerative and plastic-esthetic periodontal surgery, especially in the all-important esthetic zone. The microsurgical principles and procedures presented in the book are explained step-by-step in meticulously illustrated case examples with large, exquisite images. Each case example also includes an illustrated armamentarium of the materials and instruments necessary for the practical implementation of the microsurgical procedure. The book concludes with instructions on how to manage all major complications for each procedure. Every periodontist will benefit from the techniques and considerations explained in this landmark text.

“I believe that seeing a procedure performed in person is critical in learning and conceptualizing how it is done. This book, however, comes very close to re-creating real life with its scenarios, minus the actual blood, of course. I found myself drawn in by case after case, and engrossed by the detailed step-by-step photos taken before, during, and after treatments.”
