Implant Prosthodontics: A Patient-Oriented Strategy
While a wealth of specialist literature is available on the surgical aspects of implant dentistry, there is no comprehensive, systematic textbook on the implant-supported prosthodontic rehabilitation of the patient - which is the true goal of almost every implant treatment.
This renowned team of authors has filled that gap in exemplary fashion. Illustrated with well over 2,000 figures and numerous flowcharts, this book presents a coherent, evidence-based concept of prosthesis-oriented implant placement and individual esthetic prosthodontic restoration, conceptualized in detail from the first stages of planning to the aftercare period. The key interfaces between implantologist and prosthodontist, prosthodontist and dental technician, and also between the patient and the treatment team, are explained in detail.
Sure to become a future standard text, this book is a must-have, not only for implantologists and prosthodontists, but also for the overwhelming majority of dentists and dental technicians.

Biographie de l'auteur :
Prof. Dr. med. dent. Stefan Wolfart is Director of the Clinic for Prosthodontics and Biomaterials of the University Hospital RWTH Aachen, and holder of the eponymous Chair of the Faculty of Medicine at the RWTH Aachen University.
After finishing high school (1988) and completing the mandatory young men's social service (1989-1990), he graduated from the Philipps University of Marburg (degree in Dental Medicine 1995, Dr. med. dent. 1998). During his undergraduate studies, he was admitted to the prestigious German National Academic Foundation (1993). After his graduation, he joined an independent practice near Cologne (1997). He then worked as a research assistant at the Department of Prosthodontics, Propaedeutics and Dental Materials at the Schleswig-Holstein University Hospital, Campus Kiel (1998-2008), where he was appointed senior resident in 2000. In 2001, he was certified as a Specialist in Prosthodontics by the German Society for Prosthetic Dentistry and Biomaterials (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Prothetische Zahnmedizin und Biomaterialien, DGPro). In May 2006, he gained his postdoctoral teaching qualification (Habilitation), and in October 2008 was appointed to the tenured Professorship in Prosthodontics and Biomaterials at the Faculty of Medicine at the RWTH Aachen University. Dental implantology and implant prosthodontics have been his primary areas of clinical activity for many years. Prof. Wolfart's main areas of research, apart from implantology and implant prosthodontics, include dental esthetics, the clinical performance of new all-ceramic materials, and their associated improvement in quality of life. He is a certified implantologist with the German Association of Oral Implantology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Implantologie, DGI) and a Fellow of the ITI (International Team for Implantology).
