About this book

Written by leaders in the field, this comprehensive step-by-step guide combines up-to-date clinical and research information that will help clinicians to advance their theoretical and clinical knowledge on mandibular implant overdentures. Furthermore, it describes treatment considerations for geriatric populations, covering all relevant aspects from physiology to treatment planning and patient management in the surgical and prosthetic phases.

 The phenomenon of aging is a global concern for policy makers, providers, and the public. Dentists worry especially about the burden their aging patients face to maintain their oral health-related quality of life and well-being. Furthermore, older patients require health care technologies that will enable them to maintain their oral health. Over the past few decades, mandibular implant-assisted complete prostheses have attracted the attention of both patients and clinicians, as research on the biological, functional, esthetic, and psychosocial benefits has increased. This book will be of value for all with an interest in the subject..
