Oral and maxillofacial surgery is used to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries, defects and deformities of the mouth, head, neck, face and jaws. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty rapidly changing hand-in-hand with evolving advancements in technology. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons care for patients with impacted wisdom teeth, facial pain, and misaligned jaws. They treat accident victims with facial injuries, place dental implants and do bone transplants; they also care for patients with oral cancer, cysts, jaws lesions as well as cosmetic deformities of the face.
New texts are needed to keep practitioners up-to-date. A great number of textbooks have been written over the years aiming to introduce students and residents to the basics of oral and maxillofacial surgery. This book presents information relevant to advanced oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures, concepts and techniques. It targets residents, specialists and fellows engaged in practice of this dynamic specialty. For brevity therefore, the basic topics are not presented here as they are well covered in most textbooks; chapters on asepsis, infection control, surgical armamentarium, simple and complicated exodontia, antibiotic therapy, apicectomy ... are thus, not mentioned in this text. Instead, up-to-date coverage of complex, technique-oriented procedures performed by experienced specialists are presented.
This book provides surgical information that will hopefully be helpful to clinicians in developing a correct and systematic approach to patient diagnosis and current management. To this end, 14 sections on surgical complications of impactions, diagnosis and treatment of oral and maxillofacial infections, oral and maxillofacial pathological lesions, reconstruction of oral and maxillofacial defects, cleft lip and palate, and ballistic injuries, distraction osteogenesis, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, orthognathic surgery as well as oral and maxillofacial cosmetic procedures have been written by 93 international specialists from 18 countries. The text is comprised of 32 chapters focusing on advanced procedures of interest to practicing oral and maxillofacial surgeons; this book may help build a foundation of core knowledge that will guide and stimulate further research and advancements in this constantly changing field. Additionally, access to this knowledge is simple because readers may download the entire book online for free; saving paper and thus saving trees.
The preparation of this book was a difficult undertaking as it required a collaborative effort. This would not have been possible without the cooperation and contribution of national and international peers and colleagues whom I personally contacted and individually invited. It may be interesting to note here, that just recently when incidentally searching my “sentemails” list, I found to my astonishment that I had written over 700 separate individualized email invitations (not bulk mail) over the past year to renowned specialists world-wide calling for chapters; I had no idea that I had sent that many emails. This book is the result and the culmination of efforts of those colleagues who kindly responded to my email despite their busy schedule, commitments and academic obligations; thus I would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of them for accepting my invitation and contributing chapters in their field of expertise. Their assiduous, unyielding and relentless efforts in this cause and their generosity in sharing their knowledge on a global scale motivated me to complete this project. I know well that they had to sacrifice their free time to work on this book; a number of authors pulled-out half-way through the project. Preparing a book chapter is not like submitting an article. It is much more difficult. Only one who has authored a book can fully appreciate just how hard a task it is to compile and complete. But however arduous, time-taking and pain-staking a task, it had its merits. It compelled me to seek the assistance of my peers, friends and colleagues and thus provided me the honor, privilege and opportunity to work with out-standing researchers from across the globe including the USA, Canada, KSA, Poland, Turkey, Serbia, S. Korea, Kuwait, Brazil, Bosnia, Croatia, Japan, Bulgaria, Germany, Egypt, India, Italy and Iran. I hereby express my gratitude and sincere appreciation to each and every one of them. I would also like to thank : Ms. Ana Nikolic Head of Acquisitions for this project and the publishing managers Mr. Vedran Greblo, Ms. Martina Blecic, Mr. Dejan Grgur and Ms. Ana Pantar for their kind help throughout the past 12 months, and my mother Zakie my supporter, my father Mohammad Reza MD, FACS my mentor, and my wife Maryam who patiently put up with me during the lengthy hours while I sat in front of the computer monitor day-in and day-out typing-away, sending emails and editing book chapters. I hope it was worth it all.
