Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Ihab Hanna, DDS (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a protocol for practicing dentists to ensure that any patient who presents with damaged teeth will receive the best possible care, without disrupting the smooth operation of a dental practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a handbook that is not scientifically based; this is a simple, step-by-step instruction manual that can be read quickly and can be used chair-side to aid in the care of a patient with fractured teeth. This will help to provide the standard of care needed on those infrequent occasions when such a patient arrives at the dental office. These objectives are covered quite thoroughly.
Audience: This book is written, according to the editor, for dentists, undergrads, and postgraduate students. The editor is a credible authority on the subject matter.
Features: A wide variety of dental trauma, crown, and root fractures soft tissue injuries are covered, as are diagnostic measures and medico-legal management. Step-by-step instruction is provided to each and every dental trauma that could be presented in the dental office. Illustrations of these situations are also provided — radiographs, clinical pictures, and dental procedures.
Assessment: The usefulness of this book comes from the focus on all kinds of dental trauma that can be accessed through a well constructed index. This is one of the best structured books in dental trauma that gives the reader all the information needed at a glance, but it is still complete.
