'Well illustrated with computer line drawings and a section of high-quality color photographs, the text is clear, concise, and simple. The authors provide a good description of all common fixed appliances, including Begg, edgewise, and preadjusted modalities. Auxiliary appliances such as headgears, lip bumpers, and retainers are also covered. This is the best of the relatively few textbooks that are intended as introductions to fixed-appliance therapy... for first-year graduate students, it would be an excellent reference.' - Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, No. 10, October 1996.

'The stated aim of this book is to provide the newcomer to orthodontics with a basic understanding of the use of fixed appliances with an emphasis on simplicity and clarity; objectives which the book achieves easily and concisely.' 'An ideal introduction to the sometimes bewildering world of fixed appliances, this book is highly recommended for the newcomer to fixed appliances ...' Mr David Birnie DERWEB

Editorial Reviews

Book Description
An increasing awareness of the benefits of orthodontic treatment, plus advances in both the sophistication and capability of fixed orthodontic appliances have stimulated a great deal of interest from both dentists and patients. Modern materials offer much improved physical characteristics and the availability of 'aesthetic' appliances has resulted in an increase in the number of patients requesting treatment. However, the readiness with which fixed appliances can now be provided carries with it the danger of their use in inexperienced hands, and the purpose of this book is to provide the newcomer to orthodontics with an understanding of the basic principles involved as well as the mechanisms appropriate for moving teeth with fixed appliances. It also gives general guidance on how to position teeth in order to achieve optimum functional, aesthetic and stable results. Emphasis has been placed on simplicity and clarity, and the book is profusely illustrated with numerous line drawings and color plates. 'Fixed Orthodontic Appliances' should be essential reading for any graduate commencing orthodontic training, as well as for the interested general practitioner and final year student.
