Since its first publication in 1994, Curriculum Prosthodontics has become the standard textbook at numerous German universities. The outstandingly readable and fully illustrated comprehensive presentation of the subject enjoys great popularity among students, dentists, and dental technicians alike. From A for anamnesis to Z for zirconium oxide, 49 chapters present a synoptic treatment concept that includes all areas of modern dental prosthodontics. In addition to the classic areas of fixed,
removable, and combined prosthetics – taking into account esthetics and dental materials science – preprosthetic periodontology, myoarthropathies of the masticatory system, orthodontic pretreatment, and aftercare are described in detail. Through the incorporation of special topics such as the historical development of dental prosthodontics, color determination, dental implantology, mouthguards in sports, the psychologic aspects of tooth loss, and prosthetic rehabilitation as well as patient satisfaction and oral health-related quality of life, the reader is given a comprehensive picture of the subject.
