Textbook and Color Atlas of Traumatic Injuries to the Teeth encompasses the full scope of acute dental trauma, including all aspects of inter-disciplinary treatment. This fourth edition captures the significant advances which have been made in the subject of dental traumatology, since the publication of the last edition more than a decade ago. The comprehensive nature of the book is designed to appeal to distinguished clinicians and scholars of dental traumatology, whether they be oral surgeons, pediatric dentists, endodontists, or from a related specialist community.
Description: This third edition, published 13 years after the second, is a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms, physiology, classifications, treatment, and prognosis of trauma to the orofacial apparatus.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate oral surgeons and dentists about orofacial trauma, which is a very worthy objective. I believe it meets and surpasses the authors' objectives.
Audience: The audience for this book is oral and maxillofacial surgeons and dentists. The authors both have excellent credentials and have drawn from the expertise of other professionals as well as their own.
Features: The book contains superb color drawings and black-and-white x-rays. The references are up-to-date. The table of contents and index are adequate. This book is a work of art, with exceptional graphics and chapter summations, and it is of a comprehensive nature.
Assessment: This third edition is far more in-depth than the second, adding new areas such a physiology, dealing with soft tissue injuries, and prognosis of traumatic injuries. This is the most comprehensive text written on this subject and should be in any library where one may need information on dental trauma. It is much better than the second edition and easily justifies replacing it.
Drs Jens Andreasen, Frances Andreasen and Lars Andersson, along with 41 contributors, have created a truly marvellous work of professional sophistication, clinical relevance, compassionate awareness and futuristic projections in this evidence-based approach to the contemporary challenges that practitioners and researchers face in the understanding and management of traumatic injuries to the teeth.
Overall this text and its contents are second to none in all of dental publishing... As a profession we are forever in their debt for providing us with this beacon of science and clinical practice.
James L. Gutmann, Endo Endodontic Practice Today
Every dental professional and specialist will benefit from this text, which presents a variety of interesting traditional and nontraditional material. The illustrations are breathtaking, balancing histology with contemporary esthetic management.
The text is clear and well written with references throughout.
Traumatic Injuries will serve as an excellent reference for practitioners and specialists who have a good working knowledge of dental traumatology, but it is a gold standard for building the student’s lifelong reference library.
