This concise book provides a sound basis in orthodontic diagnosis for both dental students and general dental practitioners. Following an introductory chapter on the development of normal occlusion, the authors offer a clear overview of the diagnostic process. They look at how both local and general factors affect the final treatment plan and the advantages of different management strategies. Diagnosis of the Orthodontic Patient includes over 150 illustrations, five genuine clinical cases, a chapter on evidence-based practice, and a glossary of terms.
