Book Chapter
Chapter 1 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It focuses on wound healing, an overt expression of a complex and tightly choreographed sequence of cellular and biochemical responses directed toward restoring tissue integrity and functional capacity following injury. It discusses the healing process and wound healing response. It cites that the healing continuum of coagulation, inflammation, granulation tissue and tissue remodeling is broken down into inflammatory, proliferative and remodeling phases.
