The new edition of this best selling dental textbook has been thoroughly updated to keep abreast of current knowledge of the disease processes and the role of operative dentistry in their management. The book describes clearly and concisely the indications and methods for many common operative and conservative procedures in dental practice. Procedures and techniques are illustrated in full colour and where appropriate, step-by-step sequences are given. Its popularity lies in the fact that it doubles as an atlas and the text is clear and accessible. The new co-author, Tim Watson, is well known as an expert in adhesive dentistry. A new chapter has been added on adhesion and adhesive restorations, since these are now the first choice for primary lesions for all surfaces and all teeth in the mouth. Amalgam is still thoroughly described, but bonding techniques are now included with a shift away from pins where retention is a problem. The diagnosis of failed restorations has been updated in the light of new research and techniques for refurbishment and repair of restorations are advocated where appropriate. As in previous editions, the approach is disease and prevention orientated, is problem based and the changes have a research evidence-base.
The authors clearly state that the intention is that this book contains the material a student needs to know about operative dentistry (except endodontic and periodontal treatment) up to the point that crowns become necessary. Without a shadow of doubt I feel that this book fulfils this role excellently. It is full of clear, concise and informative text, and where required these are backed up by quality photographs and illustrations. It is divided into three well thought out parts; the first is on diseases, disorders, diagnosis, decisions and designs, the second on treatment techniques and the third on monitoring and maintenance.
The eighth edition sees a whole new chapter placed to provide information to the rapidly expanding field of bonding to tooth tissue; this chapter is indeed justified and provides a good overview of current knowledge and techniques in this area.
From reviews of the Seventh Edition:
`It is a book of perspectives and of context, and to the author’s credit. It presents these quite well… Broader than most dental texts in its perspective, and shorter than almost all other operative texts in its length, this edition of Pickard’s Manual is a very readable collection of treatment guidelines for operative dentistry.’ Canadian Dental Association Journal
`It is primarily aimed at the undergraduate, but it can be recommended to practitioners who over the years have slipped into a routine based on how they were taught twenty or more years ago… This is a well illustrated, well set out and easy to read manual which can be recommended to undergraduates and not-so-new graduates alike.’ Australian Dental Journal
