The development of oral implantology has accelerated dramatically since the discovery of osseointegration (the integration of bone and implants). The stability of the implant after its insertion is essential for successful osseointegration. In order to achieve this stability, it is often necessary to prepare the area and reconstruct the bone to ensure that the site is the correct shape and size for the implant. In maxillofacial surgery this procedure is known as preprosthetic surgery. Preprosthetic and maxillofacial surgery: Biomaterials, bone grafting and tissue engineering provides the reader with the fundamentals of the biology and physiology of maxillofacial bone reconstruction.

The book opens with a detailed discussion on bone tissue engineering. Part one then looks at bone reconstruction in implantology and reconstructive preprosthetic surgery. The chapters consider the fundamentals of bone grafting in implantology, cranial bone harvesting, symphyseal and alveolar reconstruction, and alveolar bi-directional distraction in preprosthetic surgery. Further chapters investigate maxillary sinus grafting and bony corpus reconstruction (the monobloc technique) for implant insertion, before concluding by examining alveolar widening using distraction osteogenesis in maxillofacial surgery, and bone grafting and Le Fort 1 osteotomy in cases of major atrophy of the maxilla. Part two covers reconstruction in particular situations, beginning with applications of biomaterials in alveolar and maxillofacial bone reconstruction and moving on to describe implants in congenital missing teeth, maxillo-mandibular amputations and alveolar reconstruction in clefts for implant rehabilitation. Other topics discussed include bone reconstruction in irradiated situations and periodontal surgery related to alveolar bone reconstruction for implant insertion. Part three focuses on tissue engineering and considers mucosal and gingival tissue engineering and the osteoinductivisation of dental implants and bone-defect-filling materials. Tissue engineering and endodontics are also examined and the book concludes with a chapter on the current status of teeth engineering.

With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors Preprosthetic and maxillofacial surgery: Biomaterials, bone grafting and tissue engineering proves an invaluable resource for clinicians as well as students studying implantology, biomaterials, maxillofacial surgery and dentistry.
