The book highlights the application of distraction osteogenesis in repositioning of teeth. The paradigm in orthognathic surgery has shifted in a way that it is now possible to perform distraction osteogenesis in an outpatient basis. The principles and procedures involved in this cutting edge technique are outlined in the book. Rapid orthodontics, sophisticated imaging, tissue engineering, principles of bone healing and tissue repair and more are discussed by leaders in the field. Through distraction osteogenesis (slow movement), and orthognathic surgery (immediate movement), virtually every kind of facial deformity is treatable in a reasonable period of time. Dr. Bell, a prime mover in oral and maxillofacial surgery, has collected contributions from first-class academicians and practitioners in the field for this lavishly illustrated volume.

Key Features

· Full colour
· CD-Rom containing surgical videos and case reports, cutting edge procedures and imaging.
