    Summary: This book presents up-to-date information on promising indications for ultrasound in contemporary periodontics and implant therapy with the aim of assisting researchers and dental practitioners to use this novel imaging modality to advance research and patient care. Readers will find clear guidance on the application of ultrasound for evaluation of periodontal and peri-implant tissues. The mechanism of ultrasound imaging is explained in detail and compared to other imaging modalities. Furthermore, the role of ultrasound in the planning and execution of implant surgery and the assessment of implant stability is discussed. The book closes by considering the potential dental applications of functional ultrasound and volumetric ultrasound. This book will potentially be of high values for dental surgeons, periodontists, general dentists, orthodontists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental researchers and other practitioners, etc.
