This book is designed as a comprehensive and up-to-date instructional guide to the strategies employed for regeneration of the maxillomandibular region, with emphasis on allogeneic and tissue engineering principles. Readers will find information on indications and contraindications for procedures, pertinent anatomy, surgical techniques, postoperative management, and management of complications. Current surgical techniques utilizing biotechnology for regeneration and reconstruction are described in depth, with explanation of their benefits in minimizing patient morbidity. In addition, state of the art free vascular transfer for maxillary and mandibular reconstruction is extensively discussed, with a particular focus on indications and step-by-step technique. The authors are well-known experts in their field who are keen to share their extensive experience and preferred approaches. The book is intended for all oral and maxillofacial surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and plastic and reconstruction surgeons who wish to increase their knowledge on the latest modalities of maxillary and mandibular reconstruction
