It has been compiled in order that after reading this any dental nurse, whether working in a dental practice or a specialist maxillofacial unit, would have a clear appreciation of their role during the procedures that fall under the umbrella of maxillofacial surgery.
It has been written in a user-friendly manner to aid student dental nurses preparing to sit the National Examining Board for Dental Nurses' National Diploma in Dental Nursing. Any offence is entirely unintended and apologies are tendered for any perceived affront. The contents of this book should not be used for diagnostic purposes. To my husband David, whom I am very proud for his own personal achievements, for the love, perseverance and continual support he has shown whilst I have been co-writing this book.
He is one of the most inspirational men I know and without him I wouldn't achieve the things I do. To my son Sean, for the man he has become and his partner Zoe for the most precious gifts, our wonderful grandchildren Elsie and Lochlan.
To my parents Nigel and Valerie for always being there for me, encouraging and supporting me in everything I do, especially my Father who has constantly given his time to reading and helping me correct the chapters I have written. He is the other inspirational man in my life. Finally I could not forget Cinzia who co-wrote this book for her support, commitment and dedication along with Wiley-Blackwell for publishing our vision.
Some restrict their practice to straightforward extractions while others undertake a wide range of surgical procedures associated with the jaws, teeth and soft tissues.
Many refer to this practice as minor oral surgery. There are specialist centres and departments within local dental and general hospitals where clinicians are committed to procedures that come under the umbrella of maxillofacial surgery. This involves the smoothing off of the alveolar ridge. In dentistry an apicectomy comes under the auspices of endodontic treatments; however, as they involve raising a flap, it is classed as a surgical procedure.
The reason these procedures may be undertaken can be attributed to disease, accidental injury, congenital malformation, periodontal problems and caries.
These treatments can be carried out with the use of local anaesthetic, either on its own or in combination with a form of conscious sedation, or a general anaesthetic, thereby involving many team members. When patients are being treated for cancerous lesions, a multi-disciplinary team approach involves additional team members. Many specialist units and departments within local dental and general hospitals have forms that can be completed to make the referral process easier.
If the general dental practitioner or the patient's general practitioner suspects a cancerous lesion, they can use a fast track referral form.
Once this has been undertaken, an appointment will be sent to the patient for a consultation. Once the patient has been seen by the specialist unit or departments within local dental and general hospitals, an outcome letter is sent to the referring practitioner. This will contain a diagnosis and whether the patient has been or will be treated by a member of the maxillofacial team, or are being returned into the care of a general dental practitioner or general practitioner for ongoing treatment and care.
Any dental radiographs furbished by the general dental practitioner will be returned. Patients should always be aware that their information may be shared with other healthcare professionals. Confidentiality extends after the death of a patient. ConsentWhen taken, consent can help to protect the maxillofacial surgeon from complaints, claims and charges as documentary evidence will be available of all discussions held. Consent is a process where one person grants another permission to undertake something such as maxillofacial surgery.
It is given once the patient consenting is aware of what is going to happen, and they can withdraw their consent at any time. Consent can be obtained in any of several forms. It can be written, verbal or a compliant action. Obtaining written consent from a patient is a must for all maxillofacial surgery, as complications may occur. Forms are available for use and, when completed, will contain the patient's personal details as well as the practice details. It must be completed in ink without any abbreviations being used.
The age of the patient and the capacity of a patient to consent will determine which consent form is to be completed. It will be signed by both parties, with a copy being given to the patient. If the patient does not want a copy, then this must be recorded in the notes. Only the member of the maxillofacial team qualified to undertake the proposed treatment can take consent from a patient. Consent should be obtained in a quiet, private area to maintain patient confidentiality.
All aspects of treatment will be discussed and the patient must be allowed to ask questions. Dental nurses cannot take consent, but best practice would be to ensure that consent is in place prior to maxillofacial surgery. For consent to be valid, a patient must have the mental capacity to give consent and give it voluntarily.
They must be able to understand and retain the information given, contemplate it and come to a decision themselves. The maxillofacial team must describe to the patient all aspects relating to treatment which must include the advantages and disadvantages, any associated risks, alternative treatments, time frames of the proposed treatment and associated costs.
Consent forms can vary according to the clinical environment; many hospitals and trusts utilise the NHS consent forms, therefore providing standardisation.
Failure to maintain these could lead to serious implications for both the patient and the maxillofacial surgeon as they provide personal details pertaining to a patient and a chronological account of the treatment the patient has received or any that is pending.
They will include details of any discussions that have been held, including those during the consent process. It must be remembered that records of the patient extend to photographs, radiographs and study models and that all must be correctly processed, only used for the purpose for which they were intended and disposed of correctly when no longer required.
Medical, dental and social histories must all be documented and considered by the maxillofacial surgeon so that the patient receives the best possible care. Failure to ensure this could mean that patient care is compromised, which could lead to litigation. Medical histor yIt is essential for a medical history to be taken in order to provide individual care, tailored to the patient's needs. This is usually gained through a questionnaire which asks set questions pertaining to any illnesses the patient has or has previously suffered.
It will contain questions relating to any medication the patient takes, both prescribed and non-prescribed, including recreational. Other information requested will be family history, previous operations with or without a general anaesthetic, any recent travel abroad, and drinking and smoking habits.
From this a clear picture of the patient's medical status can be formed before providing any maxillofacial treatment. A patient's medical history must be updated every time they attend for treatment in order to establish if there have been any changes; if so, their impact on the patient's treatment plan must be assessed and the treatment plan modified if necessary. This is particularly pertinent when the patient is receiving treatment with intravenous, transmucosal or oral sedation.
As consent is required for maxillofacial surgery, the maxillofacial surgeon has to be sure the patient is competent to give this; if not, another means of acquiring consent must be found. The cost of maxillofacial surgery has to be deliberated and discussed with the patient in order to determine whether they can afford to proceed or not. If not, other ways of handling their dental care have to be explored. Along with a basic understanding of conditions and lesions that patients may present within the maxillofacial outpatients department, such knowledge forms an important base for the dental care professional.
When the maxillofacial surgeon looks in a patient's mouth they examine the teeth for signs of caries, the gingiva for any indications of periodontal disease and the oral mucosa and tongue to ensure its presentation is normal.
In a healthy mouth the teeth should sit firmly in the alveolar bone, being attached to it by the periodontal ligaments. The bone and periodontal ligaments are covered by the gingiva lining the alveolar ridge. The gingiva is attached to the neck of the tooth at the junctional epithelium with the gingival crevice being no more than 2 mm.
The gingivae is pink in colour, having an orange peel effect with a tight gingival cuff around the tooth. There should be no bleeding on probing and, sub-gingivally, the periodontal ligaments and alveolar bone should be intact. Any examination that highlights disease will be investigated and treated accordingly.
There are eight bones that make up the cranium. The single bones are the frontal, occipital, sphenoid and ethmoid and the paired bones are the parietal and temporal. GlabellaThe area of frontal bone which joins the supericiliary arches. The frontal suture can sometimes be traced on and above the glabella. NasionThis is the midpoint of the frontonasal suture, and is the connection between the frontal and nasal bones.
The frontonasal suture is found below the frontal suture. Basic Guide to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery OccipitalThis single bone forms the lower posterior area of the cranium. Areas of the occipital bone include the squama, foramen magnum, hypoglossal canal, occipital condyles, external occipital protuberance and external occipital crest. The outer edge of the wing is located anterior to the temporal bone. EthmoidThis bone comprises a vertical and horizontal plate, a lateral mass orbital plate and ethmoid sinuses and a mid-nasal concha and crista galli.
It is a complex, deeply seated bone between the nasal cavity and orbits. It forms part of the nasal septum along with the vomer; it also forms the medial aspect of the walls of the orbit and nasal cavity. ParietalThese paired bones form a simple curved shape. The parietal bones form the superior, lateral and posterior area of the cranium. TemporalThe temporal bones are paired, one found on each side.
They form the side and base of the skull. Each single temporal bone comprises the squama, tympanic and petrous regions. The temporal bone forms part of the temporal mandibular joint. Facial bonesThe facial area of the skull consists of 14 bones.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a new field in which endoscopy has become established and is rapidly growing in importance. Sialendoscopy is a minimally invasive technique that allows establishment of a solid diagnosis of most pathologies. Endoscopic treatment of sialolithiasis with stone baskets, micro burrs and auxiliary instruments offers a minimally invasive alternative to open salivary gland surgery. Endoscopy is also becoming increasingly important in temporomandibular joint arthroscopy.
A detailed patient evaluation section includes guidelines on when to refer patients to specialists and how to provide supportive postoperative care. New to this edition is a chapter focusing on anesthesia in greater depth than any of the previous editions. Tucker, this book is a valuable reference for dentistry and dental hygiene students alike!

В последние несколько лет наша работа здесь, в агентстве, становилась все более трудной. Мы столкнулись с врагами, которые, как мне казалось, никогда не посмеют бросить нам вызов. Я говорю о наших собственных гражданах. О юристах, фанатичных борцах за гражданские права, о Фонде электронных границ - они все приняли в этом участие, но дело в другом. Дело в людях.
Подходя к шифровалке, он успел заметить, что шторы кабинета шефа задернуты. Это означало, что тот находится на рабочем месте. Несмотря на субботу, в этом не было ничего необычного; Стратмор, который просил шифровальщиков отдыхать по субботам, сам работал, кажется, 365 дней в году. В одном Чатрукьян был абсолютно уверен: если шеф узнает, что в лаборатории систем безопасности никого нет, это будет стоить молодому сотруднику места.
