Atlas of complications and failures in implant dentistry : guidelines for a therapeutic approach / Luigi Galasso, Gian Antonio Favero ; [foreword by P-I Brånemark].
D 617.674 G14
The authors of this clinical atlas aim to both reduce the clinical incidence of avoidable errors and provide clinicians with tested management protocols to follow when complications arise. In separate chapters, the book presents complications that can develop at different stages of treatment: implant connection, immediate loading, prosthetic phase, and follow-up. The first part of each chapter describes specific complications in terms of their etiology, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and resolution and treatment. Then, using clinical case examples, the authors relate the stories of how these complications have occurred in real-life clinical situations and show how variables such as individual patient concerns, desires, and priorities affect the way in which they are handled. This practical reference book serves as a guide for diagnosis and treatment of complications and also, more importantly, provides a code of conduct and a philosophy for how to approach complications.
