Despite the ever-expanding array of orthodontic journals and textbooks available today, too many clinical decisions are based on either anecdotal evidence or the espoused treatment philosophy of the current luminary of the lecture circuit. The authors of this book take an unbiased approach to orthodontics by systematically reviewing the relevant clinical literature and analyzing the scientific evidence to help practitioners select the most effective and efficient modes of treatment. Each chapter addresses a specific topic by summarizing the literature, critically reviewing the evidence, and offering impartial recommendations that can be adopted by clinical practitioners. Topics include Class II and Class III malocclusions, wires and wire sequences, dental asymmetries, causes of root resorption, and retention strategies, among others. This timely text enables busy clinicians to acquire knowledge of the current literature and apply evidence-based orthodontics in their practices.

About 20 years ago Alexander (orthodontics, Baylor College of Dentistry) launched a new bracket system that, along with innovative treatment techniques and principles, became very popular with both patients and practitioners. Ever since he has been refining his ideas and practices, and here he presents the top 20, including establishing goals for stability, using brackets designed for specific prescriptions, building treatment into bracket placement, exploiting growth to obtain predictable correction, establishing the ideal arch form, following a logical archwire sequence, consolidating arches early in treatment, maintaining consolidation, creating symmetry, using nonextraction treatments when possible but use extraction treatments when necessary, and removing appliances carefully. Amongst his most impressive chapters are those that encourage practitioners to face reality and to commit themselves to excellence.
