As the only book available on the topic, this text provides a unique look at both traditional techniques and cutting-edge information on the specific management of pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgery. Vivid photographs from all stages of the surgical procedures highlight the discussions and explanations from the premier authorities in the field. Coverage encompasses all areas of treating pediatric patients, including growth and development, psychological management, anesthesia and sedation, metabolic management, genetics, and speech problems.
    • Full-color format featuring step-by-step photos and detailed drawings illustrate each technique and visualize key concepts.
    • Discussions of both common and uncommon procedures provide an understanding of the timing of treatment and the prevention of potential problems.
    • Material on speech disorders demonstrates the risk factors and craniofacial relationships for the surgeon to consider when determining functional outcomes.
    • A chapter dedicated to molecular genetics and syndrome recognition supplies the reader with knowledge of genetics that can assist in diagnosis and development of treatment.
    • Descriptions of the principles and changes of facial growth in children help to develop a rational treatment plan.
    • Subject matter relating to anesthesia and sedation in pediatric patients presents important management challenges and suggests guidelines for procedures.
    • A chapter suggests guidelines for deep sedation and anesthesia in pediatric offices.
    • A chapter on maxillofacial infections covers diagnosis and treatment in an area that comprises a significant part of oral and maxillofacial surgery training and practice.
    • Thorough discussion of salivary gland inflammatory disorders and salivary tumors in children.
    • Extensive features on head and neck tumors in children give insight into the difficult decisions regarding chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or resection.
    • Step-by-step analyses of ancillary procedures provide detailed information on pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgery.
    • Comprehensive coverage of orofacial pain, facial fractures, soft tissue abnormalities, and vascular anomalies improves understanding of these sometimes confusing conditions.
