"The book's target audience is best summaried in the preface to the first edition: "We present the highlights of dental traumatology in a format which will be a ready reference for general (dental) practitioners and aid dental students in their studies." (British Dental Association, 1 November 2011)
Reviews of the Previous Edition:
"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)
"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 dex_scription 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 book is beautifully laid out for easy reference...illustrated with high quality photographs, radiographs, and illustrations." (British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery)
From the Back Cover
The third edition of Traumatic Dental Injuries: A Manual builds on the widespread success of the previous two editions. The ultimate guide to dental trauma, the manual preserves its uniquely usable and reader-friendly format, demonstrating step-by-step treatment protocols for commonly occurring traumatic injuries. Several new sections have been added to expand the number of clinical scenarios, describing soft tissue injuries associated with dental trauma, showing how decoronation of ankylosed anterior teeth in adolescents can preserve the alveolar process for later implant placement, and identifying predictors for pulpal and periodontal ligament healing complications as well as for tooth loss.
A unique feature of the new edition is the accompanying DVD which presents computer animations of all trauma scenarios, as well as links to the internet-based interactive Dental Trauma Guide to predict healing complications for individual trauma scenarios.
