An increasing awareness of the benefits of orthodontic treatment, plus advances in both the sophistication and capability of fixed orthodontic appliances have stimulated a great deal of interest from both dentists and patients. Modern materials offer much improved physical characteristics and the availability of 'aesthetic' appliances has resulted in an increase in the number of patients requesting treatment. However, the readiness with which fixed appliances can now be provided carries with it the danger of their use in inexperienced hands, and the purpose of this book is to provide the newcomer to orthodontics with an understanding of the basic principles involved as well as the mechanisms appropriate for moving teeth with fixed appliances. It also gives general guidance on how to position teeth in order to achieve optimum functional, aesthetic and stable results. Emphasis has been placed on simplicity and clarity, and the book is profusely illustrated with numerous line drawings and colour plates. 'Fixed Orthodontic Appliances' should be essential reading for any graduate commencing orthodontic training, as well as for the interest

Evidence-Based Orthodontics satisfies the educational demands of orthodontics, which demands the integration of the best research evidence with the clinician’s expertise and the patient’s unique values and circumstances. This land-mark text is the first to be devoted to the methodology, principles and practice of evidence-based practice in orthodontics. It aims to serve as a reference for those wishing to understand the principles of evidence-based practice including the foundation for clinical study design, epidemiology and the statistical inferences from data. The ability to define a search strategy from established databases and to identify relevant clinical and translational research in the scientific published literature requires a new approach in orthodontic education. Evidence-Based Orthodontics provides a contemporary approach to those strategies in clinical orthodontic practice. The growing ability to translate critical appraisals of evidence into clinical practice and evaluate clinical evidence for its validity and potential usefulness requires an understanding of basic elements in epidemiology and biostatistics. Evidence-Based Orthodontics provides its readers with a cogent, clear resource with which to navigate and understand this important subject area. It provides students and practitioners of orthodontics with an indispensible guide to this vital tenet of education, research, and clinical practice.
