Since its first publication in 1994, the Curriculum Prosthetics has become a real “bestseller” among German-language prosthodontics textbooks and enjoys great popularity with students, dentists, and dental technicians alike. It is a standard textbook at many German universities and provides an excellent, readable, and fully illustrated overview of the subject. Following a complete update, this 5th edition is the most current and comprehensive textbook on dental prosthodontics and its related fields. In addition to a review of the contents in light of the current state of knowledge in the field of conventional prosthetic methods, digital methods have also been taken into account to a much greater extent than before. This has, once again, significantly expanded the contents of the 5th edition.
From A for anamnesis to Z for zirconium oxide, a synoptic treatment concept is now presented in 49 chapters that includes all areas of modern dental prosthetics. The treatment concept is characterized by aspects that are individually designed for the patient and take equal account of esthetic requirements, minimally invasive methods, and the longevity of prosthetic restorations. In addition to the classic areas of fixed, removable, and combined (implant) prosthetics and dental materials science, preprosthetic periodontology, myoarthropathies of the chewing system, and many other preprosthetic pretreatment measures as well as aftercare are described in detail. Special added topics such as sports mouthguards, oral health-related quality of life, and evidence-based dentistry make this book a comprehensive guide on the subject of dental prosthetics.
