- New! Intraoral Bone Grafts for Dental Implants chapter addresses bone biology, pre-op evaluation and planning of the bone graft surgery, patient preparation, the bone graft donor site, the graft recipient site, and implant placement in onlay grafts.
- New! The Use of Computerized Treatment Planning and a Customized Surgical Template to Achieve Optimal Implant Placement chapter introduces the guided implant surgery concept combining presurgical planning and computerized surgical-guide fabrication with presurgical fabrication of a provisional or final prosthesis that can be delivered at the time of surgery.

“A complete overview of everything the rapidly evolving field of implantology currently has to offer.”
De Tandarts, June 2011
“In addition to the named editors, over 40 other specialists have contributed to this 500-page work. This volume has increased its chapters to deal with more recent topics, including: piezosurgery related to implant reconstruction; management of patients with facial disfigurement; and the use of computed tomography/cone beam computed tomography and interactive virtual treatment planning.”
