Trauma to the teeth of children and adolescents poses a problem to many dental practitioners. By the very nature of such injuries, emergency treatment is usually needed but often a traumatised child or adolescent arrives in a dental practice when the dental practitioner has a fully booked clinic. Handbook of Dental Trauma has been specially written to provide a chairside 'what to do' guide to emergency treatment for such occasions and will enable dental practitioners to quickly and efficiently handle most cases of dental trauma. Instructions on follow up and longer term care of traumatic injuries are also given. The layout provides accessible text for quick reference, using bullet points and step by step instructions for treatment. Advice on accurate recoed keeping and preparation of legal reports is also given, as there are often potential legal implications in trauma cases. Handbook of Dental Trauma is an essential aid for practising dentists and dental undergraduates, as well as a useful revision tool for postgraduate dental students.

Chapter on aesthetic restorative dentistry for the adolescent looks at material selection, tooth color and form, diastemas, discolored teeth, bleaching and more. Chapter on sport dentistry and mouth protection covers how to evaluate child/adolescent athletes, the different types of mouth protection available, and professional activities in sports dentistry. Chapter on the diagnosis of oral lesions and developmental anomalies uses tables and extensive illustrations to depict developmental anomalies, white soft tissue lesions and enlargements, dark soft tissue lesions, ulcerative lesions, radiolucent lesions of bone, mixed radiolucent and radiopaque lesions of bone.

Failure of eruption of permanent teeth (tooth impaction) represents a common, but as yet largely unexplored, problem with regard to proper treatment and prevention. This condition affects almost 20% of the population. Thus, the third molar impaction problem alone represents the second most expensive medico-dental surgical problem in the United States. Apart from that, the sequelae of surgical removal of third molars (that is, dental nerve damage) are the most frequent complaints in dental litigation in the United States. This book includes manifold aspects of tooth impactions such as etiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all types of tooth impactions. The treatment aspect is illustrated by step-by-step color illustrations of all aspects of the surgical procedure.

This manual encourages countries to conduct standardized oral health surveys that are comparable internationally. The manual provides guidelines for assessing the current oral health status of a population and the future needs for oral health intervention. Oral diseases are among the most prevalent non-communicable diseases and major components of the global burden of disease. The key risk factors are common to chronic and oral diseases. Guidelines are presented for risk factors assessment. The WHO approach can facilitate the incorporation of oral health into national health surveillance systems. Surveillance of oral health over time and monitoring of programs may provide decision-makers, public health planners, and health administrators with valuable information about the relevance and cost-effectiveness of public health intervention programs.
