Orthodontics is concerned with facial growth and the development of the dentition and occlusion. A solid understanding of orthodontics is an essential prerequsite to treatment planning in children and invaluable in the management of adult dentition. As a result of the speed at which clinical practice changes, a new edition of which clinical practice changes, a new edition of An Introduction to Othodontics will prove invaluable. This popular textbook continues to provide a first-rate introduction to current thinking and the practice of orthodontics. This is an extremely readable and user-friendly book for both undergraduate dentistry students and the interested general dental practitioner alike. The strength of the book lies in its logical and concise format and is complemented by over 350 full-color photographs.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sylvia A Frazier-Bowers, DDS, PhD (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry)
Description: With its user-friendly organization and descriptive illustrations, this is a nice overview of basic orthodontic principles.
Purpose: Although there is no stated purpose, the book does provide objectives for each chapter that are simply stated and relevant.
Audience: The author suggests an audience of students who are new to orthodontics, general practitioners, pediatric dentists, and related specialists. It is a good resource for practicing general dentists who seek to understand the basic principles of orthodontics and it is useful as a study guide for training dental students.
Features: The 23 chapters cover basic topics ranging from the etiology of malocclusion to definitions of malocclusion and, finally, various treatment modalities. The book also includes contemporary appliances and techniques that represent an up-to-date perspective of orthodontic principles. The illustrations are vivid and simple to follow, increasing their educational value. There is no shortage of illustrations and helpful diagrams.
Assessment: This book offers a well-organized overview of the orthodontic field and is a nice addition to the general practitioner's collection. This fourth edition nicely incorporates clinical advances in technology with well-placed illustrations and tables.
From the Publisher

from reviews of the First Edition:

"In addition to its obvious role in the teaching of undergraduates...junior postgraduates could learn much from its structured handling of information, to assist them in the consolidation of the vast amounts of knowledge they are required to attain."--American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics

"The many color photographs are of excellent quality, as are the many illustrations accompanying the text. The book, in addition to being a particularly good introductory text for students at the predoctoral level, could well be of interest to general practitioners of dentistry as a readily accessible information source."--American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
