This book details practical treatment procedures that the reader can put directly into practice. The author draws upon his vast experience to describe how appliances should be used and what they can achieve. He also recommends treatment approaches for specific problems, such as asymmetries and open bites, and how to avoid the common pitfalls associated with them. These topics are amply illustrated with schematic drawings and clinical photographs. In addition, the author refutes some long-standing myths and misconceptions that often lead to problems for inexperienced clinicians. Successful orthodontic treatment depends on many factors, some of them often dismissed as insignificant. The author advocates attention to details both large and small to achieve predictable and stable results.
