In spite if improvements in oral health, there will always be a significant number of people who lose all their teeth. As people live longer and total tooth loss occurs later, successful provision of complete dentures is increasingly challenging, and managing the transition from the natural to the artificial dentition has become more critical. The fourth edition of this well established and highly regarded textbook has been completely updated to reflect these changes.Primarily aimed at undergraduate dental students, "Prosthetic Treatment of the Edentulous Patient" will also be of value to all those, including dental technicians, who are faced with solving the problems of complete denture treatment in dental practice. This book adopts a flexible approach to accommodate the variation found in edentulous patients. It stresses the critical importance of good communication between clinician and dental technician. It emphasises care of the elderly and the value of holistic treatment. It includes many photographs and clear line drawings. It contains sections on clinical audit at the end of each clinical chapter. It presents updated and restructured text and references. It emphasises evidence-based treatment. The fourth edition includes a new foreword written by Professor Per-Olof Glantz, Vice-Chancellor, Malmo University Sweden.
