This book addresses the issues related to impacted teeth in children and adolescents from both orthodontic and surgical perspectives. Emphasis is placed on a prophylactic approach to scale back or, when possible, eliminate the necessity for surgery.
However, there are cases that surgery is unavoidable; therefore, this text describes strategies for designing intervention in specific anatomic situations. Above all, its goal is to assist orthodontists plan treatment to satisfy the requirements of their patients.
The knowledge I gained in preparing to publish variety of articles with Danielle Pajoni, an authority in computed tomography , proved invaluable in helping me to see the precise anatomic locations of ectopic teeth. Finally, I even have worked closely over the previous couple of years with Xavier Korbendau, who has contributed his clinical skills to the surgery of variety of patients with complex problems.
