There are frequent situations during which oral and maxillofacial surgeons find themselves in need of an instantaneous answer to a clinical problem. However, this will involve a time-consuming look for the acceptable reference source. This book continues the format of the previous edition by providing one place to quickly find information on a various range of clinical topics, including dentoalveolar surgery, maxillofacial trauma, craniofacial anomalies, and oral pathology.
All of the previous chapters are updated, and new chapters on implantology, harelip and palate, maxillofacial reconstruction, oral epithelial cell carcinoma, and face lift are added. Moreover, increasing the dimensions of the book has allowed for the inclusion of the many summary charts, tables, clinical photographs, and radiographs, which wasn’t possible within the previous version. As a result, this remake provides expanded information in an improved format.
Although this book is meant as a fast reference source, familiarizing oneself with its content beforehand will both increase the reader’s public knowledge base and improve the power to seek out information quickly in urgent situations. Residents in oral and maxillofacial surgery should find its content particularly useful during their clinical training, and therefore the concise organization of the fabric should even be helpful to them in retaining information when subsequently preparing for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
