This comprehensive book on oral and maxillofacial surgery presents the material in an organized, easy-to-follow fashion.


The purpose is not just to present a compilation of the literature, but also to share the contributing authors' personal experiences. TMJ ankylosis and oral submucous fibrosis, common in the authors' subcontinent, are discussed in detail.


Some chapters, such as the ones on basic principles of surgery and incisions in maxillofacial surgery are highlights, and it is the authors' hope that the book will appeal to undergraduates as well as postgraduates. The material is appropriate for an undergraduate curriculum.


The book covers general topics in oral and maxillofacial surgery in depth. The easy-to-follow charts in the chapters on osteomyelitis and infections are well done and the format of case presentation for the burn chapter is effective. The thesis writing section is a practical addition, as well. Although this is probably more of a cultural issue, there are no chapters on cosmetics.


With its emphasis on TMJ ankylosis and oral submucous fibrosis common in the authors' country, this book is a unique addition to the specialty. The chapters are well written, organized, informative, and easy to follow. It is comparable to Contemporary Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, 6th edition, Hupp et al. (Elsevier, 2014), in terms of its undergraduate focus.
