The Handbook of Orthodontics offers a concise and accessible overview of the scientific and clinical basis of orthodontics.

This popular textbook explores the concepts of occlusion and malocclusion, craniofacial development, postnatal growth and development of the dentition. It takes the reader through the principles of patient examination, orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning – with detailed chapters on the management of malocclusion, dentofacial orthopaedics, fixed appliances, skeletal anchorage, aligner systems and orthognathic surgery. There is a strong emphasis on evidence-based medicine throughout, with a dedicated chapter outlining the theoretical basis of good clinical research and critical appraisal, with summaries of the latest clinical evidence throughout the book.

A clear writing style and the inclusion of over 500 high-quality illustrations make the Handbook a defining text for postgraduate students training for specialist exams and dental undergraduates wanting to learn more about clinical orthodontics.
