This book uses an interdisciplinary approach to explain the origin of and possible solutions to many different occlusal problems. Dr. Peter E. Dawson guides the reader along the way providing balanced explanations of theory and technique. He also debunks many popular misconceptions through practical discussion of their origins and the deficiencies of the arguments behind them. Different sides of many philosophies are presented while guiding the reader to the most functional and esthetic solution to various occlusal situations. Hundreds of full-color photographs, illustrations, and diagrams show aspects of the masticatory system, the epidemiology of occlusal problems, and procedures for finding the ideal occlusion. Whether the reader is a general dentist or a specialist, they will find this book applicable to their treatment methods and philosophies. Authored by a world-renowned clinician dedicated to using an interdisciplinary approach to treating occlusal problems. Visual aids including hundreds of full-color photographs, and the direct correlation between text and visuals, allow practitioners to create a mental link between concepts and applications. Text boxes throughout the chapters clarify main ideas, answers to commonly answered questions, and explanations of specific procedures allowing key information to be easily extracted from the source material. Thorough explanations and examples of Dawsons approach to occlusions are presented. Many various disorders are discussed, making the text applicable to multiple branches of dentistry and preparing practitioners to properly treat a variety of conditions. Chapters on technology and instrumentation available today make treatment planning more effective and efficient. Includes criteria for successful occlusal treatment.
