Recent Advances in Dentistry is a monographic series focused on new developments in the field of dental medicine. The scope of the book series covers all aspects of the field including orthodontics, dental surgery, prosthodontics, forensic dentistry, evidence based medicine and much more. Each volume of the series is themed around a specialty area in dentistry and brings together contributions written and reviewed by professional experts. The book series is essential reading to dental residents in training as well as biomedical researchers. Orthodontic Biomechanics describes the mechanics behind the treatment of complex orthodontic cases using clear aligners. The volume explains a variety of complex malocclusions including increased teeth crowding, spacing, overjet, overbite, open bite, major jaw discrepancies, underbite and much more. Simplified treatment planning methods based on thorough diagnoses have also been devised by the authors for the benefit of the readers. Shortening orthodontic treatment time by careful diagnosis, planning based on understanding of orthodontic biomechanics is also discussed in addition to comparisons of jaw cases where surgery is more useful. Orthodontic Biomechanics is a useful guide for the use of clear aligners in a wide array of cases encountered by orthodontists in their daily dental practice.

'Sequential Plastic Aligner' treatment is an exciting development in the field of orthodontics both for patients and clinicians. However aligners are not as simple to use as it may seem at first glance. As with most dental treatment, success or failure depends very much on case selection and treatment planning. These appliances offer great advantage of esthetics, oral hygiene, minimal chair time and can be considered as a good treatment option for selected cases with mild malocclusions. Current systems have limitations with current technology to achieve space closure with proper tip and torque to produce root parallelism and esthetic crown angulations in severe malocclusions which require extraction of premolars. Future developments in technique and technology may overcome these limitations and therefore enhance their utility for the treatment of more severe forms of malocclusions.
