In Fixed restorations: a clinical guide to the selection of materials and fabrication technology, the authors Irena Sailer, Vincent Fehmer, and Bjarni Pjetursson have created a timely and comprehensive guide to modern reconstructive dentistry.
The book is divided into four parts: basic information regarding materials and production processes, step-by-step clinical procedures with extensive case presentations, long-term outcomes, and management of complications. With over 2000 clinical images and diagrams, backed up with the scientific evidence for recommendations, the best practice for tooth- and implant-supported fixed restorations is clearly described. The vast clinical and technical knowledge and experience of the authors has resulted in a unique textbook that will aid in decision making regarding material selection and procedures for all patients in need of fixed restorations.
Part I. Basics
Part II. Clinical procedures step-by-step
Part III. Long-term outcomes of fixed restorations
Part IV. Avoiding and managing complications

“It is not every day that a new textbook on fixed prosthetics is published. But when it is, and one sees it is designed and primarily written by two of the world's leading specialists in restorative dentistry, Irena Sailer and Bjarni Pjetursson, in combination with the exemplary dental technician, Vincent Fehmer, then one expects something big and beautiful. And with this publication, that is exactly what one gets. Manageable, logically structured, and richly illustrated with some fantastic dental- and implant-supported constructions."
