The Manual of Minor Oral Surgery for the General Dentist provides a clear and thorough practical guide to performing the common surgical procedures encountered in dental offices on a day-to-day basis. Building on a sound basis of the proper protocols and appropriate standards of care, the book approaches each procedure through detailed, step-by-step description and illustration. Richly illustrated with clinical photography, the Manual of Minor Oral Surgery offers dentists an indispensable tool to carry out their everyday work, as well as providing information on more advanced procedures for those experienced dentists wishing to develop professionally.

The Manual of Minor Oral Surgery focuses on difficult extractions, including third molar impactions as well as covering other common surgeries, such as apicos, surgical crown lengthening, pre-prosthetic surgery, and biopsies. A section on supportive aspects of surgery addresses medical histories, management of infection and bleeding, and oral sedation. It contains medico-legal recommendations and safety requirements needed in today’s busy general practice. Finally, there is also a chapter on organizing and conducting humanitarian dental trips to Third World countries.
