Volume 1
The 20 Principles of the Alexander Discipline


Introduced in 1978, the Alexander Discipline represents a unique approach to orthodontic treatment; today, legions of clinicians around the world apply its 20 master principles in their practices. An outgrowth of the Tweed technique, these basic principles have been developed empirically over many years in the author’s own practice. Complete records of patients treated by the author dating back 25 years are presented to demonstrate specific results and the stability of treatment. This book will be of strong interest to anyone involved in the study or practice of orthodontics.
Volume 2
The Alexander Discipline: Long-Term Stability


In the specialty of orthodontics, 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, 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 that follow from the treatment plan to the definitive result and that highlight long-term stability in 5- to 40-year posttreatment records. A must-have for the practicing orthodontist.
Volume 3
The Alexander Discipline: Unusual and Difficult Cases


Following in the footsteps of the previous two volumes, this third volume of the Alexander Discipline, focusing on unusual and difficult cases, demonstrates through the presentation of complete patient records how these principles can be used to achieve beautiful, functional, and stable results even in patients requiring creative treatment planning and treatment mechanics. In the situations presented in this book, there is no one right answer to the problem, and the orthodontist must have the confidence and relevant knowledge to formulate the treatment plan most suitable for each patient.
