Two new perio books we just received

Carranza's clinical periodontology /Michael G. Newman (ed). 12th ed, St. Louis, MO: Saunders Elsevier, 2014.

The 12th edition includes the most current periodontal information from basic science and fundamental procedures to the latest advanced techniques in reconstructive, esthetic, and implant therapy. This text not only shows how to perform periodontal procedures, it describes how to best manage the outcomes and explains the evidence supporting each treatment. Covering all the information found on the National Board Exams in the US, this edition is a perfect choice for dental education programs and students.

Manual of clinical periodontics /Francis G. Serio. 4th ed., Hudson, Ohio: Lexicomp, 2014.

This visually cued manual is designed as a practical reference for general dentists, dental hygienists, and students. It is useful in both clinical and educational settings. Organized by basic principles of periodontics, the Manual of Clinical Periodontics presents information in a question-and-answer, bulleted format and offers straightforward approaches to periodontal diseases, diagnosis, and therapy options, including sample treatment plans. Updates to this edition: New 4-color photographs, radiographs, line drawings, and illustrations added. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging. Updated techniques and considerations in implant dentistry. Enhanced chapters on principles, assessment, diagnosis, treatments and therapies, and prevention of periodontal disease.
