Summary This atlas as a guidebook with twenty chapters covers the latest surgical techniques and clinical cases based on procedure-based approach. Each chapter consists of two to five sections providing detailed descriptions of the basic techniques of evaluation, diagnosis and treatment to allow immediate clinical application. Impacted wisdom teeth are divided into 5 major categories in three-dimensional structure detected by CBCT on the position and growth status of impacted teeth, which helps the classification of 6 degree of difficulty determination for the treatment and the time and surgery procedure needed for each degree. About 1800 colour clinical photos and line drawings with case reports provided by dental expert surgeons and educators in this atlas offer detailed, procedure-based instructions, illustrations and approach that demonstrate how to plan for and perform wisdom teeth surgical procedures safely and efficiently for dentists and students to manage the patients with wisdom teeth disorders
