This book is designed to meet the needs of all orthodontists interested in treating children, adolescents, and/or adults with brackets placed on the palatal and lingual surfaces of the teeth. It explains how to achieve excellent results, comparable to those obtained with labial brackets, by means of techniques performed entirely within the dental office and avoiding use of expensive outside laboratories. The book is divided into three parts. The first is devoted to biomechanics, considering each type of malocclusion and describing how to prepare the arches optimally. This is not a theoretical section; rather it covers aspects acknowledged to be of prime practical importance by students and doctors. The second part explains how to treat the most common malocclusions, with step-by-step descriptions of techniques used in everyday clinical practice. The concluding part of the book describes finishing procedures to enhance aesthetics and discusses long-term results.

Esthetics and Biomechanics in Orthodontics, 2nd Edition provides everything you need to know to successfully apply biomechanics in clinical orthodontics. This edition features new content in the areas of tooth movement, treating Class III malocclusions, skeletal anchorage, Surgery First treatment plans, and space closure. In addition to comprehensive guidance on basic biomechanic principles, this state-of-the-art reference also shows how all techniques can apply biomechanical principles to improve the force delivery, understand and prevent side effects, and achieve predictable results. Highly regarded lead author, Dr. Ravindra Nanda, is a widely known and respected educator in the field of orthodontics. Comprehensive coverage of diagnosis, treatment planning, and esthetics in tooth display provides a solid foundation in orthodontia and biomechanic problem solving. Case reports include high-quality photographs, radiographs, and illustrations to better show biomechanical principles. Radiographs and line drawings accompany clinical photographs to help illustrate the various stages of treatment. NEW! Content on the fundamentals that guide orthodontic tooth movement offers a clear understanding of how orthodontic appliances work and their role in designing treatment methodologies. NEW! Content on procedures and indications for optimal space closure helps you define priorities in treatment planning and understand all the treatment alternatives. NEW! Detailed information on biomechanics-based management of impacted canines provides treatment planning strategies and biomechanic techniques to achieve desired results without increasing treatment time. NEW! Coverage on modalities for the treatment of Class III malocclusions offers insight into new treatment protocols — such as corticotomy-assisted facemask therapy and corticotomy-assisted maxillary protraction — that are available to effectively treat these occurrences. NEW! Detailed information on the different forms of skeletal anchorage (including mini-implant technology) shows how certain challenges associated with types of tooth movement can now be overcome by applying sound biomechanical principles to skeletal anchorage. NEW! In-depth coverage of the Surgery First (SF) treatment plan offers step-by-step examples to help explain the technique of Sendai SF and its benefits

This text provides state-of-the-art reference on the successful application of biomechanics in clinical orthodontics. It features comprehensive guidance on basic biomechanic principles to orthodontic problem resolution by focusing on the fundamentals. Also including new, cutting edge topics, this book shows how all techniques can apply biomechanical principles to improve the force delivery, understand and prevent side effects, and achieve predictable results. Full-color illustrations help the reader visualize and grasp key concepts. Line drawings accompany clinical photos to clarify important information and techniques. Chapters are organized from the most common to least common orthodontic problems, creating an easy-to-follow layout that makes the topics easy to find. Inclusion of cutting edge topics such as skeletal anchorage, esthetic concepts, interdisciplinary treatment, biomechanical factors, biology of tooth movement, and management of orthodontic problems presents current trends in orthodontics. Information on the latest advances in the use, selection, and properties of orthodontic wires exhibits all viable options for important decision-making. Comprehensive coverage of diagnosis, treatment planning, and biomechanical strategies provides knowledge of how to apply specific mechanisms to specific problems. Simplified approach makes biomechanics easy to understand and implement. Presentation of nonextraction treatment modalities explains how to use headgear, Herbst appliances, memory alloy springs, and other methods to yield predictable results. Solid information on treating malocclusion shows readers how simple changes in arch wire bending can greatly improve tooth movement quality.

This book is the Course Manual for Academy of Fixed Orthodontics (AFO) courses in Orthodontics for the general dental practitioner and has been written exclusively for the general dentist who wants to incorporate fixed orthodontics into their practice. Towards this goal the course manual is a concise treatise on the study and practice of fixed orthodontics in general and explains in particular, the technique of MBTTM prescription of preadjusted edgewise appliance system (Straight WireTM). Within about 100 pages of text amply illustrated with color photographs and line drawings, the reader is introduced to the basics of orthodontic theory and practice. Biomechanics of tooth movement and the theory behind the preadjusted appliance system is given in brief. Basic instruments and materials for the fixed orthodontic practice is presented with photographs. Diagnosis and Treatment planning using Clinical tools, Cephalometrics and cast analysis is explained in enough detail. Banding and Bonding of the appliance and wire changes through planned sequence are presented succinctly. Each type of clinical cases (malocclusion) and the extraction and non-extraction methods to be followed is explained in detail. The chapter on Standard Operating Protocol gives the reader the entire steps in practice of straight wire fixed orthodontics in just 3 pages. Four pages of sample Cast Analysis form allows for a thorough practice and at the end of the book few blank pages are given so that the reader can write any notes if needed. All these features make this a unique handbook and desktop reference for the dentist who would like to lean fixed orthodontics. As this is a course manual, it is highly recommended to take up the entire Academy of Fixed Orthodontics course, which is supported by Videos and Lectures and effective post course mentoring. The concepts and implementation of this course will allow the participant to choose the content and period of study that best suits her practice. The course also teaches the latest in fixed orthodontic treatment mechanics including Tip-Edge, Lingual Orthodontics, Orthodontic Mini-Screws and the Self Ligating systems. The course is designed in such a way that the participant can easily understand the basics and will confidently be able to incorporate fixed orthodontics in the general practice. This is a handbook for the clinical practice of fixed orthodontics and is not a textbook on the subject.
