Intended for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons and otolaryngologists, this book details orthognathic and reconstructive surgery procedures as they are expected to be practiced in the next five to ten years. Coverage includes the "why's" of maxillary, mandibular and combined surgical procedures, how to perform the techniques and their results. It also stresses diagnosis and treatment planning. The author uses the restoration of function as the unifying core principle, and details total temporomandibular joint and jaw reconstruction. He describes the multidisciplinary management of nasal deformities associated with dentofacial deformities, and covers such state-of-the-art techniques as branemark implants and hydroxylapatite implants. The topic of condylar position is examined, both before and after orthognathic surgery. Other topics discussed include esthetic surgery/dentistry, anatomical and clinical foundations for osteotomy designs, analytic model surgery, the treatment of TMJ pain, and dysfunction by intraoral vertical ramus osteotomies.
