  • Application of the “soft tissue paradigm” to modern orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Critical evaluation of controversies in treatment approaches and treatment timing.
  • NEW information on the use of cone beam CT for 3-dimensional evaluation of dental and facial dimensions and relationships, and 3-D superimpositions to evaluate treatment response.
  • Problem-oriented treatment planning, with use of digital technology to develop a database that can feed through to the treatment plan.
  • Updated content on biomechanics to help you plan efficient use of modern orthodontic appliance systems.
  • NEW skeletal anchorage techniques using bone anchors and mini screws.

New to This Edition

  • Full-color design includes hundreds of clinical photographs and illustrations with brighter, more engaging text and more demonstrative figures.

  • Current technologies and advances in contemporary treatment provide clinicians with ways to make treatment planning and execution more efficient.
  • Updated content on biomechanics gives clinicians ways to plan appropriate orthodontic appliance systems through which mechanotherapy is delivered using principles of forces.
  • Updated information on mechanical devices, such as transplants, transpositions, implants, and temporary anchorage using mini screws, provide an understanding on how these devices can affect orthodontic treatment and what is available on the market to improve treatment outcomes.
  • Appliance chapters have been condensed to reflect only the most useful and contemporary materials.
  • Chapters on treatment for adults have been rewritten to include new concepts in periodontics and new clinical cases with predictions and outcomes and discussion of surgical vs. orthodontic treatment options.

  • Every section of the book begins with a “section opener” to outline the main concepts discussed in that section.

Published Reviews

  • “Largely because of the improved layout and especially the wealth of colour illustrations, the book is much improved and easier to read. It also contains an excellent and very comprehensive 33-page index.”
