ReviewReview Comments on the 4th EditionDrs Jens Andreasen, Frances Andreasen and Lars Andersson, along with 41 contributors, have created a truly marvellous work of professional sophistication, clinical relevance, compassionate awareness and futuristic projections in this evidence-based approach to the contemporary challenges that practitioners and researchers face in the understanding and management of traumatic injuries to the teeth.Overall this text and its contents are second to none in all of dental publishing… As a profession we are forever in their debt for providing us with this beacon of science and clinical practice.
