Popular with thousands of students and clinicians, this book is the established introduction to the study and practice of orthodontics. With the increased demand for, and expansion of orthodontic services, this third edition has been updated to provide a comprehensive orientation to current thinking and practice for dental students and dental care professionals. Coverage ranges from the anatomical features leading to assessment, through cephalometrics and treatment planning for all classes of patient. Modern appliance options are reflected, as well as the demand for adult orthodontics, and innovations in surgical orthodontics. The ultimate resource for those new to the study of orthodontics, the book also serves as a launch-pad for those intending to specialise, and as an aid to interdisciplinary management of the dentition for general dental practitioners, paediatric dentists and other specialists.
