Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a comprehensive reference for all trainees and specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral surgery, and surgical dentistry. This landmark new resource draws together current research, practice and developments in the field, as expressed by world authorities. The book's aim is to cover the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, incorporating recent technical and biological developments within the specialty. It provides a uniquely international and contemporary approach, reflecting the exciting developments of technique and instrumentation within this surgical field, built on technical innovation and medical and dental research. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery coalesces impressively broad and deep coverage of this surgical specialty into a cohesive and readable resource, identifying commonalities and shedding light on controversies through reasoned discussion and balanced presentation of the evidence.

The Editors are joined by over 50 international experts, offering a truly global perspective on the full spectrum of issues in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Where relevant, the book provides separate coverage of topics where practice differs significantly from region to region, such as general anesthesia.
