About the book
This book aims to explore the various management strategies for facial and dental anomalies which include both surgical and non-surgical orthopedic interventions. Treatments like craniofacial and orthognathic surgery are critical not only in addressing skeletal malocclusion but also in the management of obstructive sleep apnea, facial cosmetics, orthodontic discrepancies, cleft and craniofacial deformities, post-traumatic dentofacial asymmetry, and temporomandibular joint disorders.
The craniomaxillofacial skeleton consists of multiple intricate and distinct but co-functioning units. Corrective measures are typically multi-disciplinary in approach, requiring the skills of experienced providers in plastic surgery, otolaryngology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, sleep medicine, orthodontics, and dentistry. Thus, the text itself is meant to be an inter-professional collaboration of providers from a variety of specializations.
We hope to create a book that is relevant not only across medical disciplines but across ethnicities as well. To this end, we welcome experts from across the globe to help ensure that the information contained within remains universal.
