Contemporary Orthodontics

Overview

As in previous editions, the objective of Contemporary Orthodontics is to provide a comprehensive overview of this subject that is accessible to students, useful for residents, and a valuable reference for practitioners. Our goal has been to put information into a perspective that facilitates clinical use in a rational way.


Contemporary Orthodontics, Third Edition follows the basic outline of previous editions, incorporating much new information without changing the overall approach and organization. There is an increased emphasis on the use of computer database applications and computer simulations in diagnosis and treatment planning, a particular focus on clinical decisions based on data instead of an anecdote and opinion, and additional material on clinical biomechanics that reflects the continued rapid progress in this area.


For use in the dental curriculum and residency programs, the book is supplemented with extensive audiovisual and computer-based teaching materials. The slide-tape sequences that accompanied basic and applied growth and development sections have been replaced with computer teaching programs (Windows and Macintosh versions), and several new videocassettes incorporate computer graphics. The most impressive advance in these supplemental teaching materials, however, is the availability of computer self-tests, which not only tell students if they have correctly answered questions about the material they have just studied, but will also tell students why answers are correct or incorrect. Appropriate graphics reinforce the message. These tests now accompany both the video and computer programs for basic and applied growth and development. The result has been a further increase in the number of students who really master the material.
