Summaries
Long Description
Innovative techniques and materials, accompanied by an increased understanding of orthodontic biology, have revolutionized the field. This text covers the evolving science of orthodontics as it relates to optimal patient therapy and care. It includes numerous case examples that relate the concepts to clinical applications.
Long Description
Written by experts in the field, this essential atlas provides a comprehensive discussion of the safest, fastest, and most efficient evidence-based orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatments. Leading clinicians provide information on innovative methods and materials - including the twin block technique, the functional magnetic system, the interarch compression spring, and the Invisalign system. The book also contains thorough reviews of diagnostic principles, preventive orthodontics, early treatment options, implants, functional therapeutic methods, and treatment planning for mandibular distraction osteogenesis. Instructive color photographs and illustrations accompany clinically relevant case studies that demonstrate key techniques and long-term treatment results. Highlights: Clinical information on interceptive orthodontics, including discussions of guided extraction and functional orthopedics The biomechanics of orthodontic therapy for fixed and removable appliances Discussion of anchorage control and septal arch mechanics The latest methods for solving tooth-size discrepancies, morphologic variations, and recrowding in the lower anterior segment 1260 drawings, radiographs, and photos - most in full-color Packed with valuable information for dentists and maxillofacial surgeons, Orthodontic and Dentofacial Orthopedic Treatment is crucial reading for every orthodontist and orthodontic student. This textbook makes an excellent contribution for the orthodontists and orthodonstic students. - Hellenic Orthodontic Review
