Book Description

April 27, 2006 0323030092 978-0323030090 5
This comprehensive text presents a detailed, heavily illustrated, step-by-step approach to restorative and preventive dentistry. It draws from both theory and practice, and is supported by extensive clinical and laboratory research. Based upon the principle that dental caries is a disease, not a lesion, the book provides both a thorough understanding of caries and an authoritative approach to its treatment and prevention. Now offering a companion Evolve website, this new edition has been updated to address the latest developments in an ever-changing field.
  • Comprehensive coverage of operative dentistry includes fundamentals, diagnosis, instrumentation, preparation, restoration, and prevention, all within a single volume.
  • Up-to-date information covers insurance, safety, and infection control, based on the latest reports and guidelines from organizations such as OSHA and ADA.
  • A clear, consistent presentation describes each restorative process in a linear pattern: initial clinical procedures, tooth preparation, and then restorative technique.
  • Procedural alternatives include multiple approaches to problems wherever applicable, teaching how to adapt a procedure or technique to answer individual patient needs.
  • Pros and cons of restoration options include advantages, disadvantages, indications, and contraindications for restorations.
  • A course-based presentation of topics follows that of many operative dentistry courses, making students' absorption of content stronger and more efficient.
  • 2,550 illustrations include 700 high-quality half-tones and line drawings - more illustrations than any other operative dentistry text.
  • Full-color clinical photos illustrate important concepts - such as coloration and shading on both natural teeth and prostheses.
  • Computer assisted design and computer assisted machining (CAD/CAM) is incorporated into the practice of operative dentistry and related to techniques.
  • Esthetic dentistry instruction is included for this increasingly popular area.
  • Chapter outlines begin each chapter and highlight important topics.
  • Extensive references direct readers to current resources available for additional research.
  • A revised organization groups chapters into five sections, so that locating specific chapters or topics is easier and more efficient:


    • 1. Fundamentals of Operative Dentistry

      2. Instrumentation and Preparation

      3. Composite Restorations

      4. Amalgam Restorations

      5. Metal Restorations
  • Procedural Boxes offer step-by-step guides to important procedures, with each step accompanied by a corresponding image.
  • A companion Evolve website features:


    • Approximately 10 audio/video clips illustrating operative techniques and procedures
    • A full-color image collection from the text
    • Links to related content and additional information available on the Internet

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdevant's text book October 22, 2006
Format:Hardcover
Overall a good text book. The text is clear on most topics and easy to read with good diagrams and many pictures.
Each chapter starts with chapter outline that guides the reader through the book and makes it more organized. It covers topics such as structure of the teeth (e.g. Enamel, pulp-dentin complex, cementum), Cariology (The lesion, etiology, prevention and control), Bio-materials (e.g. glass-ionomers, composites, liners & bases, sealants, dental cements), Fundamentals in tooth preparation (e.g. class I,II,III,IV,V,VI restorations), Instruments and equipments for tooth preparation, Composite restorations (e.g. tooth preparations, clinical techniques), Amalgam and Metal restorations and a lot more. However not much details on materials of inlay/onlay restorations. The quality of the book is good and the price tag is reasonable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy March 8, 2007
Format:Hardcover
If you have no experience in the field of dentistry, but you want a biological or chemical background to the subject, this is the book to get. Other books were too advanced for my level of knowledge (undergrad interested in dentistry); however, this book is structured like a general biology textbook (very comprehensive and understandable). I strongly recommend this book if you are interested in dentistry, the science behind dentistry, prepping for dentistry school, or if you merely want to know your dentist's lingo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivered ON TIME and in GOOD CONDITION March 29, 2008
Format:Hardcover
I ordered two copies for International delivery to Hungary from the United States and the books arrived at my doorstep on the same day as slated for delivery.

The books were in good condition and I was overall pleased.

This is a good book for your overall Dental Studies, dealing with any procedure of Restorative Dentistry. This will be a book for life.
