Considering the fact that this is the first book onperi-implant maintenance written for the dental hygienist, it mayserve as a first step towards developing protocols for dailypractice. (International Journal of DentalHygiene, 21 May 2014) With the increasing prevalence of dental implants, notonly would I recommend this book to its intended audience of dentalhygienists, but feel it is a good read for all dental professionalsand undergraduates who will inevitably come across dental implantsat some stage of their career.
