Decision making in oral and maxillofacial surgery / Laskin, Daniel M. and Abubaker, Omar A. (eds.) 

In the orthodontic/surgical treatment modality for impacted teeth, there is considerable difference of opinion and controversies within the two disciplines regarding what is good practice and what is bad. The text discusses all aspects of the problem, from prevalence, through aetiology, to clinical treatment, long term prognosis and the reasons for failure. The material is meticulously documented and provides a wealth of sound, evidence-based advice for the Orthodontist and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. This second edition now includes much new material on the latest methods of radiographic diagnosis and the wider application of orthodontic implants. Five new chapters have been included in this new text and others have been significantly expanded, to cover virtually every aspect of this fascinating subject, which is still hardly taught in any disciplined fashion in any of the Postgraduate Specialty Courses, worldwide.
