Handbook of Orthodontics book cover

Handbook of Orthodontics

Richly illustrated and in full colour throughout, the new HANDBOOK OF ORTHODONTICS presents the subject of orthodontics in an accessible, easy-to-read manner. Whilst maintaining a strong clinical focus throughout, this new volume provides the reader with a firm understanding of the problem of malocclusion and its management and addresses the controversies in modern orthodontics by taking an evidence-based look at current clinical practice. The book also presents a clear explanation of the basic sciences of relevance to the orthodontist, including an up-to-date look at craniofacial development, growth and syndromic conditions that affect this region.

Senior dental students, PG trainees and residents in orthodontics, general dental practitioners, orthodontic therapists.
