Editorial Reviews

Neil M. Warshawsky
This book is intended to be a primary teaching aid for residents and dentists learning orthodontics for the first time. Although this is a third edition to the text, the editors have switched publishers and added six additional chapters of completely new content, making this feel like a brand new publication. The purpose is to create a broad overview of the limits of orthodontics. What is most impressive is that the chapter contributors tend to be the leading dominant authorities in their respective fields. Since the contributors are tops in their field, the information that was collected for this book tends to represent the "state-of-the-art" in orthodontics today. Not only are the editors' goals worthwhile, their efforts show in this marvelous work. The target audience primarily is new orthodontic residents. I feel the editors do a great job explaining unfamiliar concepts. However, the book is a little lacking in depth for an orthodontic resident if the intent is to learn basic orthodontic treatment planning and clinical skills. Hands down the best attribute of this text is the authenticity of the contributors and what they bring to this comprehensive work. The book is set up in an ascending hierarchy of difficulty. The beginning discussion is on treatment planning and how to recognize underlying skeletal and dental problems. Phase I treatment and interceptive mechanics are discussed first. The focus is all about harnessing and maximizing natural growth. Phase II mechanics are discussed, with descriptions of comprehensive treatment of the adult dentition. In cases where the skeletal side of a case is a deficient, special attention is given to increase the deficient skeletalcomponent. In the extreme cases this is not possible. As such the last sections of the book include discussion of periodontal problems and treatment planning for orthognathic surgery. Overall intentions of the editors are very clear, but if readers are truly lost each chapter has its own individual bibliography for reference. My only real complaint is that I felt some of the visual aides and images were of poor quality and out of date. It is to be emphasized however that this is the exception and not the rule. I like this book and recommend it to those learning about orthodontics for the first time. The cover of the book has an illustration of an implant for anchorage and I think this is very representative of the entire text. The editors and contributors discuss and demonstrate very difficult concepts related to treatment planning and orthodontic therapy. They utilize a "no nonsense" approach of how to plan for therapy using technology to our advantage. Since it has so much information it should be kept in mind that the book is more likely to be second reference and not a primary reference on mechanotherapy.

This is the fourth version, second edition of a graduate text in orthodontics that was first published in 1969. This newly updated orthodontic classic incorporates recent advances in the field, most notably interceptive orthodontic treatment in the mixed dentition. The purpose is to provide an overview of orthodontic knowledge and clinical techniques that is unique and practical for students, educators, and practitioners. This book is a valuable resource for the dental profession. It meets its objectives. The audience includes students, educators, and clinicians. Authors and contributors are all recognized as leading authorities in their field. Graphs, charts, illustrations, and clinical photographs are well laid out and are appropriate visual additions to written text. The references are current and appropriate. The preface is very descriptive and helpful in summarizing chapters. The overall appearance is simple, clean, and appropriate. This text is a definite asset for the student, educator, and practitioner of orthodontics. Previous versions have established the book as a reliable and authoritative resource of orthodontic knowledge. The historical basis for current orthodontic trends are thoroughly delineated in the early chapters, which adds to the authors' scientific credibility. It is also very user friendly.
