Orthodontic Waves seeks to publish (i) Original articles, (ii) Case Reports, (iii) Short Communications and (iv) Review articles. Original articles stand on the scientific basis of orthodontics, and Case Reports and Short Communications covered include all techniques and approaches to treatment planning.
The scope of this journal covers all areas of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics including basic and clinical research (e.g., biology, biochemistry histology, physiology, successful diagnostic procedures, treatment planning, growth and development of the maxillofacial skeleton and its clinical implications, all techniques, orthodontic materials, skeletal anchorage devices, biomechanics, TMJ disorders, orthognathic surgery and adult treatment).
