Expert teaching in the fundamentals of oral and maxillofacial surgery

Essentials of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the key textbook for all undergraduate dentistry students and trainees starting out in oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral surgery and surgical dentistry. Condensed and revised from the major reference work Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, all revisions have been made by the editors in order to bring the text up-to-date and accessible for a student audience.

The book's coverage extends from basic principles such as patient evaluation, radiographic imaging, and surgical instruments, to specific conditions and procedures, from tooth extraction and endodontic surgery to trauma, implants, dentofacial deformities and orofacial pain. It also offers:

  • A companion website with downloadable figures and MCQs to test your knowledge
  • Over 600 colour photographs, radiographs and explanatory line drawings to illuminate the text
  • Contributions from an international group of authors, distilled by an expert editor team

Note the bone height is maintained in between the implants. The bony support allows a stable soft tissue level around the superstructure. Fig. 16.1  (a) Cross-section of the mandible.

tumor's relationship to important vital structures, such as the great vessels, skull base, and orbit. In addition, CT is far superior in appreciating differences in soft tissue planes and vasculature. Fat, muscle, and water can be differentiated fairly easily. This ability is further enhanced by contrast. This has also allowed surgeons to screen for nodal metastasis with reasonable sensitivity. Although the cost of a CT scan is decreasing as accessibility increases, the study still remains

common and arises from the medullary portion of the bone, and peripheral or juxtacortical type, which is less common and originates on the surface of bone. OS may develop from pre-existing bone disorders such as Paget's disease, giant cell tumors, or fibrous dysplasia, or from prior radiation therapy, but most arise de novo. Central osteosarcomas most often involve the distal femur and proximal tibia of patients in their second decade of life. OS involving the jaws accounts for 5–7% of all OS,

that anywhere from 3 to 14 genes contribute to cleft lip and palate. Candidate genes and loci responsible for non-syndromic CL/P have been identified on chromosomes 1, 2, 4, 6, 11, 14, 17, and 19. Two genes IRF6 and MSX-1 now seem to explain about 15% of non-syndromic CL/P. Mutations in IRF6 lead to Van der Woude and popliteal pterygium syndromes. Mutations in other genes, TBX22, FGFR1, and P63, also contribute to syndromic clefts. Aberrant transforming growth factor beta-3 (TGF-β3) signaling

normally only carried out under intubated general anesthesia with the ability to administer positive pressure ventilation in the event of a pneumothorax. The surgical procedure involves identifying the rib or ribs to be taken and an incision is made directly over the rib. In females, the incision is normally placed beneath the breast or developing breast so that it will be hidden beneath the breast in the erect position. The incision is taken through the superficial musculature down to the
