Overview

Self-Ligation in Orthodontics is a major new text that reviews, analyses and clarifies the currently available peer-reviewed evidence on a number of applications of this technology, espousing diverse perspectives to make this a unique scientific resource on self-ligation. The book embraces all aspects of self-ligating brackets, extending from therapeutic outcome, to biomechanics, materials, and treatment manifestations. Each chapter addresses a specific question pertinent to the properties and clinical performance of self-ligating brackets including: force and moment generation during engagement; temporal variation of force in active self-ligating brackets; periodontal considerations and oral microbiota alterations; root resorption; treatment efficiency and associated dental effects. A work of substantial, thoughtful, and useful scholarship, Self-Ligation in Orthodontics will be a significant resource for clinicians and researchers in orthodontics, and related dental specialists. First comprehensive resource on self-ligation in orthodontics Surveys available peer-reviewed evidence Epitomizes the management of self-ligating treatment suggesting important treatment concepts and tips for the practicing clinician Includes diverse perspectives to provide a balanced and scholarly approach Richly illustrated with detailed color clinical images
