The goal of this manual is to share information that can be of value to the practicing dentist, especially the periodontist. Most of the concepts presented in this manual were taught to me when I was a student of Dr. Henry M. Goldman, Dr. D Walter Cohen, Dr. Morton Amsterdam, and Dr. Leonard Abrams of the universities of Pennsylvania and Boston graduate dental schools; visionaries of their times. I learned these concepts in 1961 to 1963 and have practiced them for the fifty "six years I was a practicing periodontist. Today's direction in periodontal field is toward soft tissue grafting and implants. The art of saving teeth seems to be minimized, so I would like to revitalize an alternate treatment course using occlusal control to help retain teeth.
