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.

This volume brings together articles on the topics of bioscience and clinical science, punctuated with striking illustrations, that have been recently published in the Japanese journal The Quintessence. The first half of the book addresses important oral and systemic health topics such as diagnosis of periodontal disease using blood and saliva testing; periodontal tissue, salivary gland, and tooth regeneration; tissue-engineered bone; correlation of periodontal disease with cardiovascular disease, preterm low birth weight, and diabetes; and genetic diagnosis of drug-induced gingival overgrowth. In the second half, the focus is on clinical issues, including dentinal remineralization and hypersensitivity; effect of whitening procedures on tooth structure; discriminate removal of carious dentin using a caries detector; nerve injury due to tooth extraction or implant placement; morphologic changes to the mandibular canal and maxillary sinus following tooth loss; and identification of vessels and nerves in the maxillary tuberosity for implant placement. A visually stunning and instructively enlightening compilation of reports on the cutting edge of dental scientific and clinical research.
