This book is divided into 3 main sections: cysts and odontogenic tumors (lesions related to the dentition); fibro-osseous lesions and giant cell lesions, which are unique to the maxillofacial skeleton; and bone lesions, which also occur in other parts of the body. Individual diseases are described with a special emphasis on histomorphological aspects. Some lesions may pose considerable diagnostic problems due to shared microscopical features and the authors' aim is to provide reliable diagnostic guidelines for the surgical pathologist who has to deal with specimens from this area. The majority of the currently available textbooks on head and neck pathology are mainly devoted to soft tissue lesions, paying less attention to the pathology of the diseases that involve the hard tissues. Texts on general skeletal pathology cannot address this gap, as the maxillofacial skeleton differs from the bones elsewhere in the body in several respects. Therefore, the book discusses both bone disorders that are restricted to the head and neck, and diseases that also occur in the extragnathic skeleton.
This book thoroughly reviews the diagnosis and treatment of injuries of the orbital walls and apex, including orbital floor, medial orbital wall, naso-orbito-ethmoid, orbitozygomatic, maxillary, and frontobasilar fractures.

In addition, the role of orbital imaging techniques, including CT and MRI, in depicting anatomic relations is explained with the aid of a wealth of radiological images and photographs. The described approach to fracture management is multidisciplinary in nature and the advice is evidence based, drawing on the latest published data. Orbital Fractures: A Physician's Manual will be an invaluable reference and guide for ophthalmologists, maxillofacial surgeons, neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, radiologists, and emergency physicians. It will also be an excellent resource for all medical students, residents in ophthalmology, and fellows who wish to broaden their spectrum of knowledge in orbital pathology.

Anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment. Many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. Recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) have become popular in orthodontics. Some orthodontic movements that are now possible using TSADs were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances. Several different types of TSAD are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. This book therefore presents the various design characteristics of TSADs and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best TSADs for their patients.
Placement of endosseous implants in the posterior maxilla is often difficult because of a lack of supporting bone.
