Diagnostics, Biomechanics, Planning and Treatment
Schupp, Werner / Haubrich, Julia
This book presents useful tips and strategies on how to integrate the Invisalign system successfully into clinical practice. The authors review the diagnostic protocols and the biomechanics of aligners before presenting Invisalign treatment protocols. With the support of accompanying case documentation, discussion of each malocclusion includes information on the associated symptoms, the rationale behind the selected treatment approaches, and the various outcomes achieved. The last section of the book deals with the advantages of the Invisalign system, and is intended to decide help patients and clinicians whether this system can provide optimal treatment outcomes in particular clinical situations. This is a practical manual for any clinician interested in the novel treatment modality of aligner orthodontics.
Principles and Practice
Nanda, Ram S. / Tosun, Yahya S.
Though comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning set the stage for effective orthodontic treatment, it is a clear understanding of the fundamental biomechanical principles behind orthodontic force that allows the clinician to design the most favorable appliances and systems. Correct application of the principles of biomechanics leads to highly efficient and successful orthodontic treatment; a lack of proper understanding produces ineffectual systems that may even lead to collateral tissue damage. In addition, knowledge about the properties of the latest wire, bracket, and bonding materials and designs is a key factor in the configuration of successful orthodontic appliances.
This essential book introduces students of orthodontics to the evolution of orthodontic technology and the properties of orthodontic materials, and outlines the essential mechanical principles behind successful orthodontic treatment.
Clear aligners are the future of orthodontics, but digital orthodontics evolves so rapidly that it is hard to keep pace. This book approaches clear aligner treatment from a diagnosis and treatment-planning perspective, discussing time-tested orthodontic principles like biomechanics and anchorage and demonstrating how to apply them to orthodontic cases using these appliances. Each chapter explains how to use clear aligners to treat a given malocclusion and teaches clinicians how to program a suitable treatment plan using available software, how to design the digital tooth movements to match the treatment goals, and finally how execute the treatment clinically and finish the case well. This clinical handbook will prepare orthodontists and dental students to exceed patient expectations with the most esthetic orthodontic appliance currently available.
van der Linden, Frans P. G. M.
For almost three decades, Prof van der Linden’s classic text, Development of the Dentition, has been the international standard reference in its field. Now, he has updated those concepts in a new edition. Starting with tooth formation and the development of the deciduous dentition, the author systematically takes the reader through the transition to the permanent dentition and through the aging of the dentition. Emphasis is placed on the relationships among the development of the dentition, the growth of the face, and funcational factors. Subsequently, the development of orthodontic malocclusions is presented, followed by the effects of untimely loss of deciduous teeth.
Katsaros, Christos / Eliades, Theodore (Ed.)
This book offers a thorough analysis of retention and stability of the orthodontic treatment results. The book is divided into three sections. The first three chapters (Section I: Orthodontic Retention) deal with the historical aspects of retention, the biological basis for relapse, and the available evidence on retention; the next six chapters (Section II: Dentofacial Treatment Stability and Relapse) cover the stability and relapse tendency of orthodontic treatment of incisor irregularity, class II, class III, transverse, and vertical problems, as well as orthognathic surgery outcomes; the final four chapters (Section III: Retention Protocols and Materials) cover retention protocols and materials, including removable and fixed retainers, the materials and biomechanics of fixed retention, and the long-term effectiveness of fixed retainers. Within the content of the book, a number of reasons are given for the lack of stability of the therapeutic outcome, as well as the development of potential unwanted effects at the retention stage.
Clinical Evidence & Therapeutic Guidelines
Eliades, Theodore / Katsaros, Christos (Ed.)
Although most orthodontic curricula provide courses on interdisciplinary orthodontic-periodontic treatment, there are still surprisingly few resources on the topic. Written by leading scholars in the field, this book provides a broad analysis of the topic from both the periodontal and orthodontic perspectives. The authors systematically analyze the scientific and clinical interactions of these specialties by reviewing all the available evidence and using case studies to demonstrate principles discussed in theory. The result is a text that outlines the treatment fundamentals and shows how to improve the therapeutic outcomes involving orthodontic-periodontic interventions.
