Principles & Practices of Operative Dentistry

Most operative dentistry textbooks are often too voluminous for most students and busy dental practitioners. Throughout the text, the description of each operative procedure is preceded by a discussion of the underlying principles. A step-by-step description of the techniques is included. It is recognized that there are several techniques available for each operative procedure, but this book describes the one that, in the extensive experience of the authors, is known to be within the competence of the novice dental student, and feasible in most general dental practices. In describing the clinical procedures, the concept of minimally invasive dentistry has been taken into consideration. The book is amply illustrated by many color photographs, some line diagrams, and radiographs, with emphasis on color photographs of actual clinical cases. Thus, the student is in a position to appreciate the feasibility of the techniques described in the book
