Overview

The Handbook of Orthodontics provides the reader with a firm understanding of malocclusion and its management, whilst addressing current controversies in modern orthodontics by taking an evidence-based approach to clinical practice. Richly illustrated and in full colour throughout, features include:

The scientific basis of orthodontics and dentofacial deformity, with particular focus on craniofacial embryology postnatal growth and development, and the biology of tooth movement

Comprehensive coverage of clinical orthodontics, including diagnosis and treatment planning, cephalometric analysis, contemporary use of removable and fixed appliances, adult orthodontics and the management of cleft lip and palate

Numerous clinical examples, which clearly illustrate the theory described

Succinct writing style and rich use of pedagogy - almost 400 illustrations and tables together with ‘pull-out boxes’ - to make learning easier

Ideal for use as a textbook or reference manual

The Handbook of Orthodontics provides an excellent introduction to the subject of orthodontics and management of malocclusion and is suitable for undergraduate dental students, postgraduate orthodontic students and those taking examinations prior to specialization in orthodontics. This volume will also serve as a useful guide for the general dental practitioner interested in learning more about the subject and as a comprehensive reference book for use in everyday practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The use of full colour throught makes it extremely attractive and the quality and quantity of information willl make it more than useful for anyone preparing for the MOrth or Master's exams. Once upon a time, there was a book called enquire within on Everything- this handy volume comes very close as regards orthodonttics. I look forward to it becoming a standard." Orthodontic Update, July 2010

''A substantial chapter (6) is devoted to describing the procedure for the aquasition of a comprehensive database for the formulation of an appropriate treatment plan. The timing aims and limiting factors of orthodontic treatment are debated in Chapter 7. Shown and described in Chapter 8 are the variety of tooth movements that can be achieved with removable appliances, either individually or on groups of teeth. The authors claim to have attempted to write a book that will appeal to students of orthodontics; I believe this they certainly have achieved. Stressed is the necessity of understanding of the basic sciences which includes a detailed description of craniofacial development, growth and disease.'' Dr. Alex Jacobson

"Both a textbook and a work of reference, this 400-page paperback is accompanied by a substantial index (over 20 pages). This makes quick referral to any of the subjects included here very straightforward."
