For every surgeon, knowledge of the anatomy is a crowning achievement that goes hand in hand with the expertise to manage surgical difficulties. Most surgeons will tell you that such knowledge can only be obtained through anatomical dissection. However, the next best thing is this book. The authors have crafted an exceptional guide to surgical anatomy of the oral cavity that includes examples of everyday clinical scenarios as well as surgical complications that can arise. The focus of this volume is on the mandibular fossae, the lower lip, the mental foramen, the symphysis and body of the mandible, the retromolar region, and the ascending ramus. Each area is explained using detailed cadaver dissections and clinical and radiographic images. This book also includes more than 60 videos throughout to demonstrate anatomical dissections and surgical procedures.
