This second edition of “Traumatic Dental Injuries: A Manual” builds on the phenomenal success of the first edition, which was published in 1999. This book has been updated to reflect advances in the treatment of dental trauma, especially with regard to the urgency of acute treatment. New chapters include long-term prognosis, diagnosis of pulp and periodontal healing complications and patient information subsequent to emergency treatment. Another addition is a chapter dedicated to the principles of endodontic treatment of traumatized teeth. A unique feature of this book is the electronically generated images of a ‘model tooth’ subjected to various sorts of trauma. This allows the dentist to appreciate and compare the manifestations and treatment outcomes of typical trauma types.Key features include: Authors are international authorities on the subject; illustrated with radiographs and sophisticated, but clear color artwork; and, highly practical and accessible: documents the treatment process succinctly and step-by-step. This book is the ideal ready-reference on dental trauma for practitioners and students of clinical dentistry. Review comments on the previous edition: ‘Overall, this book is excellent and I believe would be an essential member of a dentist’s library. It is the sort of book that can be quickly read, and information and guidance can be located easily when the need arises. The price makes the book very affordable and I wholeheartedly recommend it as an essential reference source for the general dentist and dental student’ – “Australian Endodontic Journal”.’The text, although short, is pithy and reads easily, and is supported by high quality illustrations, radiographs, and intra-oral photographs’ – “European Journal of Orthodontics”.
