A great number of textbooks have been written over the years aiming to introduce students and residents to the basics of oral and maxillofacial surgery. This book presents information relevant to advanced oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures, concepts, and techniques. [1] It targets residents, specialists, and fellows engaged in practice of this dynamic specialty. For brevity, therefore, the basic topics are not presented as they are well-covered in most textbooks; chapters on asepsis, infection control, surgical armamentarium, simple and complicated exodontia, antibiotic therapy, apicectomy are thus not mentioned in this text. Instead, up-to-date coverage of complex, technique-oriented procedures performed by experienced specialists are presented. This book provides surgical information that will hopefully be helpful to clinicians in developing a correct and systematic approach to patient diagnosis and current management. To this end, 14 sections on surgical complications of impactions, diagnosis, and treatment of oral and maxillofacial infections, oral and maxillofacial pathological lesions, reconstruction of oral and maxillofacial defects, cleft lip and palate, and ballistic injuries, distraction osteogenesis, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, orthognathic surgery as well as oral and maxillofacial cosmetic procedures have been written by 93 international specialists from 18 countries. The text is comprised of 32 chapters focusing on advanced procedures of interest to practicing oral and maxillofacial surgeons; this book may help build a foundation of core knowledge that will guide and stimulate further research and advancements in this constantly changing field. Additionally, access to this knowledge is simple because readers may download the entire book online for free at:
