" Superimposition of cephalometric images is the universally used method for demonstrating and evaluating growth and treatment outcomes in the dentofacial complex in individual patients. However, traditional procedures for cephalometric superimposition are based on the use of periosteally located landmarks or their dependant substitutes, which are unstable over time. This renders interpretation of pretreatment-to-posttreatment changes unreliable. The structural method of superimposition, developed and introduced by Arne Björk and based largely on longitudinal implant studies, is the only evidence-based method of superimposition, and it provides individualized, far-reaching insight into growth and treatment changes. Reliable measurement of local, actual changes in direction and amount is possible, allowing interpretation of the biologic events that took place. This book provides a critical, in-depth review of the history of cephalometric superimposition and the background and development of the structural method; demonstrates how to apply the structural method; and provides help and instruction for correct interpretation of the resulting superimpositions. Accurate cephalometric tracings and superimpositions represent the best way to demonstrate and evaluate changes resulting from dentofacial skeletal growth and treatment. This book will help readers to produce superimpositions with maximal accuracy, based on the best available scientific biologic evidence."--Publisher.

The second edition of this popular textbook covers the theoretical basis and clinical practice of orthodontics, with particular focus on an evidence-based approach. Characterised by a clear writing style and use of pedagogic features designed to make learning easy, the Handbook of Orthodontics 2e contains numerous 'pull-out' boxes to aid retention of key facts as well as highlighted essential-references within the text to indicate the associated research. A useful detailed explanation of the key papers is also provided within the bibliography. Exploring the concepts of occlusion and malocclusion, craniofacial development and postnatal growth, the Handbook of Orthodontics 2e explores orthodontic tooth movement, patient examination and diagnosis, and treatment planning - including the use of contemporary removable and fixed appliances. Chapters then explore the management of problems in the mixed and permanent dentitions in detail, as well as different treatment modalities, and orthognathic surgery. Cleft lip and palate, and common syndromes affecting the craniofacial region, are also included. This new edition of the Handbook of Orthodontics is ideal for final year dental undergraduates, postgraduate orthodontic students and orthodontic therapists, as well as general dental practitioners with an interest in the field. Moreover, the layout makes it an ideal reference book for practitioners of all levels and experience.

This handbook provides a short, contemporary text on the management of dentofacial deformities. The importance of a well organised, inter-disciplinary approach is emphasised throughout and the following key areas are presented: A detailed account of the role of the psychologist, from initial assessment through to post-operative support. A systematic approach to dentofacial assessment, including a section on diagnostic records and an overview of cephalometry. A logical step-by-step approach to treatment planning, emphasising the interactive thought process required when setting orthodontic and surgical objectives. The fundamentals of surgical orthodontics, with the scope and limitations of orthodontic appliances clearly explained for each phase of treatment. A description of orthognathic technical procedures and how potential errors can be minimised in order to improve the accuracy of model surgery. An account of how to carry out photo-cephalometric profile prediction planning, including a critique of the method. A detailed description of the full range of mandibular and maxillary orthognathic surgical procedures, including indications and complications. A chapter on higher-level osteotomies for the treatment of more severe craniofacial abnormalities is included for completeness. A series of six contrasting case studies. There is an emphasis on the technological advances that are rapidly enabling the global paradigm shift from 2D to 3D planning.
