9780192624314: An Introduction to Orthodontics

Orthodontics is concerned with facial growth and the development of the dentition and occlusion. A knowledge of orthodontics is an essential pre-requisite to treatment planning in children and invaluable to the management of adult dentition. This text has been written to provide those who wish to learn more about this subject with a concise and practical guide. It provides sufficient theory and academic background to give the reader an understanding of malocclusion, but also contains enough practical guidance on simple treatment modalities. All aspects of orthodontics are covered in this book, from management of mixed dentition to adult and surgical orthodontics. Although aimed primarily at the undergraduate it is also designed to be of interest and help to the general dental practitioner who needs an easily accessible source of practical advice.

Review:


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
