This text has enjoyed a distinguished reputation for almost 50 years. It has been completely revised for this 11th edition, and includes chapters by several clinical educators of international stature. The text synthesizes the diverse scientific, clinical and bio-mechanical knowledge required to manage the edentulous predicament. It analyzes the sequelae of edentulism and provides a ratinale for treatment with complete dentures. This knowledge base is also fundamental for alternative treatment modalities such as implant-supported prostheses. Particular emphasis is given to the special aspects of the aging edentulous state.
