Tissue Engineering: Applications in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Periodontics, 2nd edition

by Lynch, Samuel E.; Marx, Robert E.; Nevins, Myron; Wisner-Lynch, Leslie A.
  • Hardcover

This new edition reflects the remarkable clinical and scientific advances in bone and soft tissue reconstruction since publication of the first edition of this award-winning book 7 years ago. Highly potent recombinant growth factors are now widely available, and numerous chapters describe and provide cases illustrating how to incorporate these protein therapeutics into clinical practice. The reader will find information about the basic principles of tissue engineering, use of growth factors in orthopedics, and potential applications of gene therapy in dentistry. The book also features chapters on periodontal regeneration and localized implant site development. A section on applications for craniofacial reconstruction describes procedures for use of growth factors in the treatment of defects. The final section addresses orthopedic indications for tissue engineering. An invaluable, up-to-date resource for practitioners wanting to integrate tissue engineering into their clinical practice, researchers seeking inspiration for new directions, and those new to this fascinating field.
