Textbook of Craniofacial Growth is a "one stop" guide to craniofacial growth and development, for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The book begins with the basics - biology of bone and cartilage, physiology of bone and craniofacial growth and development. Assisted by comprehensive flow charts and well-illustrated diagrams, the text then examines control mechanisms, development of dentition, temporomandibular joint, mycology, neuromuscular reflexes and the maturation of orofacial functions. Craniofacial anomalies and the influence of genetics on growth are also discussed, guiding students through normal versus subnormal growth.
