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.
"A Handbook of Orthodontics" is therefore an excellent introduction to the subject of orthodontics and is particularly suitable for final year dental undergraduates, postgraduate students, general dental practitioners with an interest in the field and orthodontic therapists.
