This brand new volume offers orthodontists and oral surgeons with a systemized and objective approach to facial and dental planning.
Fully evidenced-based throughout, Multidisciplinary Approach to Facial and Dental Planning presents a proven system of diagnosis and treatment planning which involves analysis of the True Vertical Line, rather than the traditional measurement of the cranial base.
Containing over recent 40 clinical cases, this clearly written and beautifully illustrated book includes the latest developments in computerised imaging techniques - including cephalometric analysis - as well as the latest research findings in the understanding of bone growth and biology, including the influence of hormones on facial modelling.
Prepared by authors of international renown, this new volume is ideal for orthodontists and oral surgeons both qualified and in training.
