Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Orthodontics Book Excerpt:

Since its introduction to dentistry, cone beam computedtomography (CBCT) has undergone a rapid evolution and considerableintegration into orthodontics. However, despite the increasingpopularity of CBCT and progress in applying it to clinicalorthodontics, the profession has lacked a cohesive, comprehensiveand objective reference that provides clinicians with thebackground needed to utilize this technology optimally for treatingtheir patients. Cone Beam Computed Tomography inOrthodontics provides timely, impartial, and state-of-the-artinformation on the indications and protocols for CBCT imaging inorthodontics, clinical insights gained from these images, andinnovations driven by these insights. As such, it is the mostcurrent and authoritative textbook on CBCT in orthodontics.Additionally, two DVDs include more than 15 hours of videopresentations on related subjects from the 39th Annual MoyersSymposium and 38th Annual International Conference on CraniofacialResearch. Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Orthodontics is organizedto progress sequentially through specific topics so as to build theknowledgebase logically in this important and rapidly evolvingfield. Part I provides the foundational information on CBCTtechnology, including radiation exposure and risks, and futureevolutions in computed tomography. Part II presents the Principlesand Protocols for CBCT Imaging in Orthodontics, focusing ondeveloping evidence-based criteria for CBCT imaging, themedico-legal implications of CBCT to the professional and theprotocols and integration of this technology in orthodonticpractice. Part III provides critical information on CBCT-basedDiagnosis and Treatment Planning that includes how to interpretCBCT scans, identify incidental pathologies and the possible otheruses of this technology. Part IV covers practical aspects ofCBCT’s Clinical Applications and Treatment Outcomes thatencompasses a range of topics, including root morphology andposition, treatment of impacted teeth, virtual surgical treatmentplanning and outcomes, and more.

TMD and Orthodontics Book Excerpt:

This evidence-based book, featuring contributions from world-renowned experts, discusses in detail the functional anatomy of the temporomandibular joint as well as the aetiology, diagnosis, treatment and medicolegal implications of patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD).Despite advances in our understanding of the aetiology of TMD and in developing current treatment rationales, a number of issues remain controversial. These include the extent to which the temporomandibular joint should be a central focus of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment, as well as the role that occlusion and malocclusion play in precipitating TMD symptoms. Indeed, few subjects in dentistry and the specialty of orthodontics are open to as many interpretations or misinterpretations as TMD. This textbook provides clinical orthodontists with essential information and guidance that will assist them in understanding and effectively managing this complex multilayered problem. Throughout, clear clinical guidelines are presented on the basis of current scientific and clinical evidence. TMD and Orthodontics will be a highly valuable chairside resource for orthodontists everywhere.

3D Diagnosis and Treatment Planning in Orthodontics Book Excerpt:

This richly illustrated book is a wide-ranging guide to modern diagnostics and treatment planning in orthodontics, which are mandatory prior to the initiation of any type of comprehensive treatment. The importance of three-dimensional (3D) imaging techniques has been increasingly recognized owing to the shortcomings of conventional two-dimensional imaging in some patients, such as those requiring complex adult treatment and those with temporomandibular joint dysfunctions or sleep disturbances. In the first part of this book, readers will find clear description and illustration of the diagnostic role of the latest 3D imaging techniques, including cone beam computed tomography, intra-oral scanning, and magnetic resonance imaging. The second part explains in detail the application of 3D techniques in treatment planning for orthodontic and orthognathic surgery. Guidance is also provided on the use of image fusion software for the purposes of accurate diagnosis and precise design of the most appropriate biomechanical approach in patients with malocclusions.

Orthodontics in Obstructive Sleep Apnea Patients Book Excerpt:

This well-illustrated book is an up-to-date guide to orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment delivery in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The aim is to present the latest knowledge on the important contribution that orthodontic modalities can now make in the management of a disorder that has generally been the preserve of sleep doctors. This book comprises three parts of general understanding of OSA and medical approaches, orthodontic diagnostic process, and orthodontic treatment application. In particular, the treatment parts are subdivided into six chapters depending on the patient’s phenotype and age groups. The readers will come to realize how many modalities are available beyond the previously well-known options, and how important orthodontic contributions are for the treatment of OSA patients. The book will be an excellent resource providing well-organized diagnostic and therapeutic protocols from orthodontic point of view and will also be of value to other practitioners with an interest in OSA.
