With ever-increasing patient demands for esthetic orthodontic treatment, the use of lingual orthodontics is becoming more common in daily practice. This book takes the author’s experiences from daily practice with lingual orthodontics—including mistakes and achievements, successes and failures—and translates them into useful, step-by-step procedures for the various applications of lingual orthodontics. All procedures are detailed with complete photographic documentation. Throughout, the author focuses on the patient-professional relationship, underscoring the point that the orthodontics should be performed for the patient, not the professional, and that the patient should always be treated as more than a malocclusion. To reach as many professionals as possible, the text is written in both Spanish and English (side by side), and each chapter has a QR code that links to demonstration videos online. A comprehensive look at lingual orthodontics, this book includes chapters on positioning, bonding, biomechanics, anchorage, micro-implants, friction, and dental crowding. It will surely become a standard text for any orthodontist interested in enhancing patient care with lingual orthodontics.
