4This book is dedicated to the
dental fraternity
and to
my dearest daughter
A lot of books have been written on the basic components of orthodontic curriculum, which include normal growth and development, etiology and classification of malocclusion, biology and mechanism of tooth movement, diagnosis and treatment planning, orthodontic materials, orthodontic appliances and so on. This book, as the title suggests, is a comprehensive source of information concentrating on the clinical aspects of orthodontic treatment. The book is written with an objective to guide the dental students, especially the students mastering in the branch of orthodontics, to focus on the practical aspects of management of malocclusion.
The layout of the topics would explain the steps and approach to be executed for a particular case to achieve the desired final result. This includes learning about the patient's appraisal, typifying the case, organizing the therapy, specifying the dental and skeletal movements required, selection of appliance and planning the post-treatment retention.
The book is concise in nature; hence, a list of references is also included for learning the minute details of the subject.
I sincerely hope that the book would be a help to the undergraduate and postgraduate students, and the general dental practitioners as a reference guide. I also wish to thank the publishers who have encouraged me in this effort.
