This is the second of four volumes that together offer an authoritative, in-depth reference guide covering all aspects of the management of oral cancer from a multidisciplinary perspective and on the basis of a strong scientific foundation.
This volume addresses a range of management issues in oral cancer, from imaging and staging through to the roles of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Principles of ablative surgery are explained, and neck dissection and sentinel lymph node biopsy techniques, described.
Detailed consideration is also given to the management of complications, salvage surgery and re-radiation, the biologic basis of treatment failure, and emerging approaches to overcome treatment resistance.
The inclusion of resource-stratified guidelines will meet the needs of practitioners in different geographic regions with varying resources.
This clinical guide is a much anticipated addition to the series as
oral surgery plays such an important role in daily dental practice.
The book includes chapters on basic surgical principles, exodontia,
third molar surgery, and comprehensive coverage of everyday
considerations and problems in this vital subject area.
Available in a sturdy and attractive hardback format.
This is the second of a two-volume textbook on oral surgery in the BDJ Clinical Guide Series. Aiming to provide an evidence-based practical and pragmatic guide to dentoalveolar surgery, this volume contains advice on minimising complications and optimising patient care.
Written with the general dental practitioner and undergraduate student in mind, the book will also be of value to specialist trainees and to more senior colleagues interested in clinical updates. Both authors have many years of experience in oral surgery enabling them and their contributors, to bring a wealth of practical knowledge to this important aspect of patient care.
This is one of the best-established
introductory texts for students of dentistry
and oral and maxillofacial surgery. It
covers each of the basic tenets of the
specialty, from patient management
to anxiety and pain control, to implant
dentistry and maxillofacial trauma.
This superbly illustrated book presents the most current and comprehensive review of oral anatomy for clinicians and researchers alike.
In 26 chapters, the reader is taken on a unique anatomical journey, starting with the oral fissure, continuing via the maxilla and mandible to the tongue and floor of the mouth, and concluding with the temporomandibular joint and masticatory muscles.
Each chapter offers a detailed description of the relevant anatomical structures and their spatial relationships, provides quantitative morphological assessments, and explains the relevance of the region for clinical dentistry.
All dental health care professionals require a sound knowledge of anatomy for the purposes of diagnostics, treatment planning, and therapeutic intervention.
A full understanding of the relationship between anatomy and clinical practice is the ultimate objective, and this book will enable the reader to achieve such understanding as the basis for provision of the best possible treatment for each individual patient as well as recognition and comprehension of unexpected clinical findings.
