Textbook of Complete Dentures presents various aspects of the basic principles of complete denture prosthodontics. The text is technique-oriented and relates the basic sciences of anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and psychology with the art and mechanics involved in complete denture construction.

This clinically oriented and well-illustrated book will provide the essential information to successfully treat complete denture patients in any dental practice environment. All dental students and practitioners interested in removable prosthodontics will benefit greatly from reading this comprehensive textbook.

Readers of the 6th edition will find:

  1. New color photographs of all clinical procedures
  2. Introduction to implant retained/supported over dentures
  3. In-depth discussion of all denture occlusion concepts
