From the Publisher"The first edition was a clear well-structured guide to the treatment of dental injuries, the clinical procedures were illustrated with excellent illustrations...In the second edition the authors build on their success and explore the research that has led to an improvement in the prognosis of traumatised teeth...a prominent change in the second edition is the inclusion of a brief description of the processes involved in wound healing in the first chapter. It is this emphasis on the importance of facilitating the natural healing of tissues that makes this book stand out." (British Dental Journal)
"The text is clear and well written and well referenced ... The chapters on diagnosis of periodontal and pulpal complications are particularly helpful as this is a difficult area for many clinicians.
The manual will serve as an excellent reference for practitioners and dental students who have a good working knowledge of dental traumatology." (Journal of Orthodontics)
"This is the second edition of the popular manual first published in 1999 by Andreasen et al. who are recognised internationally as experts in dental trauma. There are important updates from the first edition including new chapters, of which one is on the endodontic treatment of damaged teeth.
The book is beautifully laid out for easy reference...illustrated with high quality photographs, radiographs, and illustrations.
[in the first edition] the authors stated that their intention was to provide a manual of dental injuries for general dental practitioners and dental students. However senior house officers in oral and maxillofacial surgery would find the manual useful, as would those studying for postgraduate examinations. It is good value for money." (British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery)
Review Comments on the Previous Edition:
"Overall, this book is excellent and I believe would be an essential member of a dentist's library. It is the sort of book that can be quickly read, and information and guidance can be located easily when the need arises. The price makes the book very affordable and I wholeheartedly recommend it as an essential reference source for the general dentist and dental student." (Australian Endodontic Journal)
"The Preface states that the text is ". . .highlights of the subject", a reference for practitioners, and an aid for students. This is the case - I found it an enjoyable evening's read, a rapid update on quite a complex subject, and a useful addition to the surgery bookshelf. As a pragmatically written supply of core knowledge and with lots of pictures, it is likely to be popular with students too." (New Zealand Dental Journal)
