Orthodontic problems are encountered in every dental practice, and clinicians must have a general knowledge of the methods of diagnosis and treatment employed by orthodontists and recognize when complex situations require referral to a specialist. This book provides the basis of simple orthodontic treatment that can favorably encourage the development of the dentition and facial growth in clinical practice. It also explains what kind of appliances are used and why, which is helpful when providing regular dental care to patients who are wearing active or retentive appliances.
