Handbook of Orthodontics

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.
