Abstract:

Management of Dental Injury and Combat Dentistry. The objectives are to obtain information by the techniques of clinical and basic research on injuries and diseases, except communicable diseases, commonly seen in soldiers, especially in field operations and overseas. The work is divided according to the major dental specialties. Emphasis is placed on diseases and injuries that are receiving little or no study by civilian research groups, and the work is aimed at providing better preventive measures as well as treatment. Combat Maxillofacial Injury. The objectives are to develop simplified procedures for the care of complex maxillofacial wounds and injuries which require long time- consuming procedures for reconstruction to achieve minimal morbidity rates from oral emergencies, preventable oral disease, and restorative failures and to develop more efficient, simplified, effective clinical and laboratory techniques which will result in better utilization of manpower and a saving in time and materiel.
