  • William H. Bell, DDS, University of Texas Southwestern, Dallas, Texas
  • Cesar A. Guerrero, DDS, Central University of Venezuela Dental School,Caracas, Venezuela
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.

Encyclopedia January 23, 2012

This book is designed for those who wants to be a special orthodontist or maxillofacial surgeon, I recommend each one of them read it again and again because this book create the language of communication between these two doctors, I mean it’s fill the gap between the orthodontist and the surgeon,
In general, this book show a great ideas in sugary, improve the diagnostic method for craniofacil deformity, it deals precisely with the orthodontic considerations. I have only one note regarding chapter 17 and 18, they are good in general speech but not well aligned and incompatible with each other
