This evidence-based book, featuring contributions from world-renowned experts, discusses in detail the functional anatomy of the temporomandibular joint as well as the aetiology, diagnosis, treatment and medicolegal implications of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD).Despite advances in our understanding of the aetiology of TMD and in developing current treatment rationales, a number of issues remain controversial. These include the extent to which the temporomandibular joint should be a central focus of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment, as well as the role that occlusion and malocclusion play in precipitating TMD symptoms. Indeed, few subjects in dentistry and the specialty of orthodontics are open to as many interpretations or misinterpretations as TMD. This textbook provides clinical orthodontists with essential information and guidance that will assist them in understanding and effectively managing this complex multilayered problem. Throughout, clear clinical guidelines are presented on the basis of current scientific and clinical evidence. TMD and Orthodontics will be a highly valuable chairside resource for orthodontists everywhere.

With the intention of improving the rate, quality, and stability of orthodontic tooth movement, those in the field are now moving toward accomplishing this 'acceleration' with minimally or non-invasive methods. New procedures have been widely tested in humans, animal models, and in vitro. While interest is growing both in the industry and at the clinical level, the understanding of the biology is limited. Considering that a simple increase in force will result in tooth morbidity and arrest of the tooth migration, a multi-disciplinary approach is critical for success. This publication brings together multi-disciplinary expertise on a wide variety of processes related to and involved in orthodontic tooth movement. The premise is that, by better understanding the biological structures and the mechanism through which they respond to biomechanical forces, one can get a better assessment of the 'acceleration'. This work presents research aimed at an improved understanding of conventional and accelerated orthodontic tooth movement from a biological perspective and will be of great value to clinicians, researchers, academics, and students.

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.

In the specialty of orthodontics, patient treatment results depend on the clinician's knowledge, manual dexterity, philosophy, and effort. This book highlights the lack of common scientific guidelines in orthodontic practice, advocating for the recognition and identification of such guidelines that work to place the teeth in positions that will produce the healthiest, most functional, most esthetic, and most stable results possible. With so many factors influencing long-term stability, such as the patient's growth and habits, the treatment technique, the application of forces, and patient compliance, this book consolidates the 20 principles of the Alexander Discipline outlined in volume one into 6 guidelines for approaching long-term stability in orthodontics, focusing on the periodontium, torque control, skeletal and transverse control, occlusion, and the soft tissue profile. Each guideline is presented with several case studies from the author's practice that not only present the treatment plan, demonstrate the mechanics at work, and show the results of treatment, but also show the long-term stability of the treatment with 5- to 40-year posttreatment records. Also included are exceptions to each guideline and an entire chapter on what to do when the treatment is not stable in the long term. A must-have for the practicing orthodontist.

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.
