    Essential Orthodontics is a comprehensive introduction to the biological principles of orthodontics. This book covers the why, when and how of orthodontics, enabling readers to identify which individuals need to be treated, to diagnose based on individual dentofacial development, and to understand the mechanical principles and tissue responses involved. Divided into three parts, this authoritative resource covers pretreatment considerations, treatment principles of skeletal and dentoalveolar anomalies, and tissue response to orthodontic and orthopaedic forces.

    Classification of malocclusions and craniofacial growth and development are discussed, and the text explores how to distinguish between normal occlusion and malocclusions. Essential Orthodontics outlines how to perform a comprehensive orthodontic examination leading to an orthodontic diagnosis, and the formation of a treatment plan. Following a student-friendly layout with key objectives and chapter summaries, Essential Orthodontics is an accessible yet comprehensive resource for both undergraduate and postgraduate dental students.

    En parodontie, le diagnostic représente le premier acte réalisé par le praticien. Il consiste à déterminer le plus précisément possible les raisons pour lesquelles le parodonte est affecté. Ce diagnostic a évidemment pour but de rassurer le patient et de l'informer des solutions thérapeutiques disponibles. Ce Mémento a pour ambition de décrire les différentes caractéristiques cliniques et para-cliniques des maladies parodontales les plus fréquemment rencontrées en pratique quotidienne. Il a été rédigé en accordant le plus de place possible aux informations récentes nécessaires à l'établissement du diagnostic étiologique. Le praticien verra donc comment répondre aux six questions suivantes : Quel est le type de pathologie ? Quelle est la nature de la flore sous-gingivale ? Quel est l'état d'activité de la pathologie ? Quel est le stade d'avancement de la pathologie ? Quelle est l'intensité du risque de récidive après traitement ? Quels sont les éléments qui vont compliquer le traitement parodontal ? Grâce à la méthode proposée par l'auteur, le chirurgien-dentiste appréciera de s'éloigner du simple enregistrement des symptômes et du concept "hygiène + facteurs iatrogènes = poches parodontales" qui a longtemps été le seul modèle étiologique disponible en parodontie !

    This well-illustrated book is an up-to-date guide to orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment delivery in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The aim is to present the latest knowledge on the important contribution that orthodontic modalities can now make in the management of a disorder that has generally been the preserve of sleep doctors. This book comprises three parts of general understanding of OSA and medical approaches, orthodontic diagnostic process, and orthodontic treatment application. In particular, the treatment parts are subdivided into six chapters depending on the patient’s phenotype and age groups. The readers will come to realize how many modalities are available beyond the previously well-known options, and how important orthodontic contributions are for the treatment of OSA patients. The book will be an excellent resource providing well-organized diagnostic and therapeutic protocols from orthodontic point of view and will also be of value to other practitioners with an interest in OSA.

    Offers comprehensive guidance on the surgery-first orthognathic approach


    Presents the authors’ own treatment protocol


    Provides diagnosis and treatment plans for various maxillofacial deformities


    Explains biological and biomechanical principles


    Includes numerous illustrations, key take-away points, and flow charts





    This book is a comprehensive guide to the surgery-first orthognathic approach (SFOA), which overcomes the problem of the very prolonged treatment period associated with conventional orthognathic surgery by avoiding the presurgical phase. The shorter duration of the treatment is due to a phenomenon triggered by the surgery, termed the regional acceleratory phenomenon, whereby higher osteoclastic activity and metabolic changes at the dentoalveolar level accelerate postoperative orthodontic tooth movement. In this book, readers will find in-depth discussion of integration of the basic biological principles of SFOA with sound biomechanical doctrines. The authors’ own treatment protocol for surgical and orthodontic management is fully explained. Diagnosis and treatment plans are presented for various skeletal maxillofacial deformities, and key considerations in pre- and postsurgical patient care are highlighted. Detailed attention is given to complication management and to the impact of recent advances such as 3D image integration, virtual surgical planning, and rapid prototyping of surgical wafers. This richly illustrated book will be an ideal resource and quick reference guide for orthodontists at all levels of experience.

    This book is a complete reference for all clinicians who are interested in incorporating into their daily practice the techniques available to reduce the duration of orthodontic treatment and to overcome other treatment limitations. It focuses especially on micro-osteoperforations (MOPs) as the most conservative, efficient, and versatile approach to increase the rate of tooth movement. The opening chapters describe the biological principles of current accelerated techniques at the molecular and cellular levels and introduce guidelines on how to select the best acceleration approach based on each patient’s needs. Clinicians are then guided step by step through the application of MOPs, case selection, and treatment planning. It is explained how MOPs can be incorporated into daily mechanotherapy for the treatment of different malocclusions and how to take advantage of the catabolic and anabolic effects of the procedure to expand the boundary of orthodontic and orthopaedic corrections. The book is written in a simple and clear language with many illustrations and clinical examples to facilitate understanding of concepts and procedures. In addition, it is a rich source for academicians and researchers interested in a comprehensive and updated review on theories of tooth movement and accelerated orthodontic techniques.

    This multiauthor clinical guide provides an evidence-based overview of orthodontic management during development of the dentition. It begins with an illustrated account of normal dental development and then covers the management of problems that are commonly seen during this process. These include acquired problems, such as caries, space loss and dental trauma, developmental anomalies, including variation in tooth number and eruption defects. In addition, detailed consideration is given to the interceptive management of class II and class III malocclusion and transverse discrepancies. There is an emphasis on evidence-based management of these developmental problems and each chapter is richly illustrated with clinical examples.

    The Orthodontic Mini-Implant Clinical Handbook is an essential resource to orthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, practicing dentists, and anyone with an interest in mini-implant skeletal anchorage.


  • 540.00 lei

    Anchorage control is one of the most challenging tasks in orthodontic treatment. Many different types of appliance are used to control anchorage, but an excellent outcome may be difficult to achieve owing to either poor mechanics or inadequate patient compliance. Recently, temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs) have become popular in orthodontics. Some orthodontic movements that are now possible using TSADs were previously considered almost impossible with traditional orthodontic appliances. Several different types of TSAD are currently available, and in choosing between them orthodontists are obliged to rely on the information provided by manufacturers, which is often not based on scientific evidence. This book therefore presents the various design characteristics of TSADs and provides up-to-date scientific evidence to assist orthodontists in selecting the best TSADs for their patients.
