It is vital for modern dentists to appreciate the effects of disease on the dental tissues and the science underpinning the materials that they use in order to maximize restoration success and longevity. Their interaction in this book catalyses the development of the operative skills required to prepare and restore teeth effectively. The 9th edition of this classic dental textbook has been extensively re-worked, re-styled, and updated to keep abreast of current knowledge, principles, and the modern practice of operative dentistry. The book describes, in a clear and structured manner, the causes of dental disease, methods of identifying the disease process in our patients, and the development and execution of patient-centred management strategies based on disease control and lesion prevention. Common operative procedures and techniques are explained in concise bulleted points, tables, and flowcharts and illustrated in full colour. The authors are world-renowned experts in the field of Cariology, Minimally Invasive Dentistry, and Dental Biomaterials. New chapters on patient management, disease diagnosis, and risk assessment, with the correlation of dental histology and the material chemistry, combine in this new edition to provide a unique insight into the contemporary world of Operative Dentistry. This book is the ideal support, at all undergraduate levels, for dental undergraduates and dental care professionals (e.g. therapists) and will act as a solid reference for further post-graduate education.
