An ideal introduction to the theory and treatment of conservative dentistry, the tenth edition of Pickards' Guide to Minimally Invasive Operative Dentistry is a must-have text. Written in an easy-to-understand and concise style, the authors introduce the essentials of dental disease before outlining how to collect patient information in order to diagnose, plan and deliver care. Exploring key topics such as disease prevention, the principles of minimally invasive operative dentistry, restorative materials and procedures, this completely up-to-date new edition integrates a thorough academic grounding for examination with an essential preparation for clinical practice. Illustrated with step-by-step colour photos, common clinical procedures are clearly set out and labelled for beginners. The tenth edition has been updated to reflect the latest evidence based guidelines for management as well as follow up and long term care. Pickards' is the ideal support for dental undergraduates, dental care professionals and will act as a solid reference for postgraduate education.
