Orthodontic appliances are the appliances created by orthodontic technology that is used for the treatment of malocclusions. There are two main types of orthodontic appliances: active and functional. They can either be fixed or removable appliances. The active appliance is the tool that is used to apply forces to the teeth in order to change its relation. Some examples of fixed orthodontic appliances are begg light wire appliances, bi helix, self-ligating edgewise appliances, tri helix, pre-adjusted edgewise appliances etc. The functional orthodontic appliance is used to produce orthodontic forces by utilizing the muscle action of the patient and responses of the nervous system. Some examples of fixed orthodontic functional appliances are herbst appliance and twin block appliance. This book provides comprehensive insights into the field of fixed orthodontic appliances. It covers in detail some existent theories and innovative concepts revolving around this domain. Researchers and students in this field will be assisted by this book.

This book provides an in-depth analysis and understanding of the efficiency of three commonly used fixed orthodontic appliances - Pre-adjusted edgewise, Tip-edge and Begg - in the treatment of Class I Bimaxillary Protrusion cases. The book features description of the three appliance types, characteristics of bimaxillary protrusion cases, dentoalveolar and soft-tissue changes produced by fixed appliances, measurement of incisor intrusion and molar extrusion using Centroid analysis and a detailed discussion on the ICON Index devised by Richmond & Shaw with respect to Bimaxillary protrusion cases . The book can be particularly useful to Orthodontic practitioners, academicians, researchers & students interested in gaining new perspectives and understanding the working and clinical efficiency of the fixed orthodontic appliances, while discovering the methodology of a research study to do so.

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 interested general practitioner and final year student.
