Overview

Enhancement Orthodontics: Theory and Practice provides a concise and compact clinical guide to achieving esthetic results through orthodontics. Challenging the accepted wisdom of the past, it offers a fresh look at orthodontic treatment, using a patient-centered paradigm for enhancing the appearance, function, and health of the dentofacial features. A mixture of clinical cases and decision-making coaching delivers an easy-to-follow guide to the prevailing clinical scenarios and how to treat them. Dwelling not merely on the intra-oral results, Enhancement Orthodontics demonstrates how to employ whole-face analysis to improve overall dentofacial appearance.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is a departure from traditional textbooks that tend to focus mainly on clinical diagnosis and treatment procedures. The author adopted a patient-centered paradigm whereby successful outcomes in orthodontic treatment depend on striking a balance between servicing the patient’s needs and exercising sound clinical judgment.

The illustrations are excellent and the concept original. Much useful information is included in this slim volume.

American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

Any orthodontist or resident who is genuinely interested in providing meaningful treatment to his or her patients while understanding the important dynamics that are woven together in a sensible modern philosophy, free from the nonproductive tyranny of dogma or gadgetry, should read this book. What a refreshing contribution to the science and art of orthodontics.
