Advanced Osseointegration Surgery:
Applications in the Maxillofacial Region
From Book News, Inc.
After discussion of fundamental aspects, addresses a range
of problems that often occur in practice and can tax the ingenuity of the
surgeon. Such problems include severe bone atrophy; bone grafting; partially
edentulous patients; and patients who have undergone ablative surgery. Advanced,
newer, and experimental techniques are discussed (but not necessarily endorsed
for general use). For implant specialists and maxillofacial surgeons with prior
experience in treating the straightforward cases. Annotation copyright Book
