Dental trauma forms a large component of the caseload that dental health workers are called upon to deal with on a daily basis. Problems due to trauma pose a constant challenge for the dental surgeon to provide treatment that ensures a favourable outcome in the face of the numerous complicating factors, including psycho-social aspects.

This textbook is without doubt a golden well of knowledge! With contributions from an array of internationally outstanding experts in the corresponding fields, it covers the vast range of problems in dental trauma management.

The book begins by extensively reviewing the biological mechanisms involved in the occurrence of injuries and the ensuing healing processes. It maintains a multidisciplinary approach and provides a meticulous overview of the topics relevant to the comprehensive management of a patient with traumatic dental injuries.

The text of each chapter in this edition is supported by an extensive review of literature well grounded in evidence-based dentistry. There has also been an update on various clinical procedures in endodontic therapy and splinting as well as additional topics on implantology, aesthetic dentistry and the psycho-social considerations important for the management of traumatic dental injuries.

This book provides comprehensive knowledge and clinically relevant tools for clinicians desiring to define appropriate evidence-based strategies for the management of patients with traumatic injuries to their teeth. The presentation of the chapter summaries together with the beautiful illustrations and logical text enables easy referencing. This book is an excellent resource. I would recommend it to all clinicians who wish to properly understand the subject of traumatic injuries to the teeth. Needless to say, all dental and related medical libraries must have at least one copy!
