Prosthodontic Treatment for Edentulous Patients by George A. Zarb; Steven Eckert; John A. Hobkirk; Rhonda JacobCovering the functional and esthetic needs of edentulous patients, Prosthodontic Treatment for Edentulous Patients: Complete Dentures and Implant-Supported Prostheses, 13th Edition helps you provide complete dentures, with and without dental implant support.
