Orthodontics: Diagnosis and Management 

of Malocclusion & Dentofacial Deformities, 2/e


The second edition is expanded and rejuvenated with a greater focus on PG students, orthodontic educators, UG students and practitioners. The book covers entire panorama of science and clinical practice of orthodontics, from basics to clinical, presented in 58 chapters organised in 15 sections. The information is provided in-depth, literature supported, complimented with real life scenarios and case reports. A special effort has been made to include structured information on subjects of relevance which are much talked about but found only in journals.  

Key Features

  • Contains a balanced blend of texts, graphics, boxes and clinical case reports encountered in clinical practice
  • A comprehensive coverage of cephalometric radiology, ethnic norms and advances in three-dimensional imaging
  • A detailed step by step approach to orthodontic treatment with contemporary fixed appliances, from diagnosis to finishing
  • Provides an up-to-date information on topics of day-to-day relevance such as epidemiology of malocclusion and orthodontic indices, psychological aspects of orthodontics, debonding, care and maintenance of occlusion after orthodontic treatment
  • Presents updated information on temporary anchorage devices (TAD), impacted and transposed teeth, inter-disciplinary treatment, management of cleft lip and palate and orthognathic surgery
  • Emerging fields such as surgically facilitated rapid tooth movement, distraction osteogenesis and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) are included with up-to-date clinically relevant information
  • Includes Companion Website containing procedural videos.
