Medical/surgical modalities for the treatment of congenital, developmental, and acquired maxillofacial defects frequently change so rapidly that the therapies described in texts on maxillofacial prosthetics are often outdated by the time the book is published. To address these problems, this book has been written with a focus on the prosthodontic aspects of care for our patient population. For a review of the etiology, pathology, or therapeutic management for a specific type of tumor or congenital defect, the reader is directed to books or journals that deal primarily with such procedures. This book is an in depth review of prosthodontic procedures as they are applied in the maxillofacial situation. The subspecialty of maxillofacial prosthetics is frequently practiced by prosthodontists and occasionally by general dentists in a hospital environment who have not had the benefit of formal training in the subspecialty. It is hoped that this book will be of use to those individuals by serving as a 'how-to' reference emphasizing prosthodontic procedures while minimizing surgical/medical considerations that can more appropriately be found elsewhere. To that end, Clinical Maxillofacial Prosthetics is written as a user's guide to commonly occurring maxillofacial prosthetic challenges. This approach is based upon careful discussion of both general and specific prosthodontic principles and techniques rather than on numerous case reports of limited value to the general reader. I would like to acknowledge the various chapter authors, some 25 of them, whose efforts have made this text an outstanding contribution to the subspecialty. Each author was recruited because of recognized expertise in a particular topic area. I am indebted to their dedication, their interest, and their energy in making this text a reality and in making it such a substantial addition to the prosthodontic literature. Heartfelt thanks to each and every one.
