The orthodontic patient - treatment and biomechanics
A. J. Ireland
Paperback / softback
Oxford University Press
UK Publication Date

This book is aimed at the undergraduate dental student, the general dental practitioner with an interest in orthodontics and students at the start of their postgraduate orthodontic training.
The book assumes the reader has progressed down the path of orthodontic diagnosis and is in the process of formulating a treatment plan.
Such planning requires the orthodontist to have a sound understanding of the biological principles of tooth movement, as well as to be awareof the treatment ideals and limitations.Knowledge of the various types of orthodontic appliances, their design and likely mode of action is also essential. Closely linked to this, advances in materials science have lead to great changes in orthodontic clinical practice in recent years.
A chapter on orthodontic materials is therefore included.
Orthodontic treatment is not without risk and there is a chapter on iatrogenic effects.
Finally, with increasing specialisation there is a need to call upon the services of colleagues fromother specialities in treating complex cases and so multidisciplinary treatments are also covered.

Here's what you say about us...

This excellent new textbook was written primarily for undergraduate dental students but there is no doubt it would also prove useful for postgraduate students starting their study for an MSc in orthodontics, and also for practitioners who have an interest in orthodontics or who wish to have a wider understanding of treatment concepts so that they can discuss treatment more readily with their patients... I would have no reservations at all in recommending this
book to undergraduates, postgraduates or general dental practitioners; it would be a useful addition to any bookshelf.
