This brand-new edition of Dr Brudvik’s classic text features hundreds of new photographs and drawings to explain the intricacies of complex RPDs. The function of each element of an RPD is described in isolation and by class, and the clinical and laboratory steps of RPD design and creation are reviewed, followed by discussions of various types of prostheses and when/how to use them. This technical manual is aimed at experienced practitioners but still presents the information in a neat, organized, and easy-to-follow manner.
