About This Book

In this 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.

Our Review

I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Hurzeler at several symposiums and he is truly one of the masters. This book has been a great reference for me in understanding principles of soft tissue surgeries. The book is comprehensive, well written, and practical. The cases are well documented and the photography is remarkable. It is a real ‘how to’ book with specific information on surgical techniques, tray set up, case selection, and overall management. It correlates the biology behind various procedures to case selection. This book is a must for both experts and beginners as an evience-based reference on Esthetic Periodontal and Implant Surgery.
