Long considered the premier book on the subject, the third edition of Textbook of Geriatric Dentistry captures the major advancements in the field since the second edition published over a decade ago. The presentation of the book reveals the increasing prominence of gerodontology, alongside its heightened connections with related fields, particularly restorative dentistry. The structure of the new edition has been modernized considerably. Many of the physiological and gerontological aspects have been condensed into the clinical chapters. Color images are used more liberally throughout the book. The third edition provides an essential focus on the clinical aspects of geriatric dentistry, with a continued emphasis on the fundamental considerations that influence care.
