An Introduction to Orthodontics, 4th Editionby Laura Mitchell
Orthodontics is concerned with facial growth and the development of the dentition and occlusion. A solid understanding of orthodontics is an essential prerequsite to treatment planning in children and invaluable in the management of adult dentition. As a result of the speed at which clinical practice changes, a new edition of which clinical practice changes, a new edition of An Introduction to Othodontics will prove invaluable. This popular textbook continues to provide a first-rate introduction to current thinking and the practice of orthodontics. This is an extremely readable and user-friendly book for both undergraduate dentistry students and the interested general dental practitioner alike. The strength of the book lies in its logical and concise format and is complemented by over 350 full-color photographs.
The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.
Review from previous edition: "An excellent and comprehensive introduction to orthodontics, written specifically with dental students, orthodontic therapists, and clinicians in mind. It easily achieves its objectives and provides the reader with so much more. It will also appeal to orthodontic postgraduate students as it provides an excellent introductory overview for the reader before they attempt to read more indepth literature." --British Dental Journal
"..an excellent introduction to the study and practice of orthodontics...the book is well written...and I would readily recommmend it to all concerned" --Dental Update
"Although no textbook can be regarded as an alternative to supervised training, this introduction to orthodontics is a well laid out and easy to follow book that is full of useful information for dental undergraduates, dentists with an interest in orthodontics and specialists in related fields such as paediatric dentistry." --International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry
"This is a very affordable text, which should definitely be on the bookshelves of students as well as those general dental practitioners who wish to be aware of current concepts in orthodontics." --Dental Practice
"The first edition of An Introduction to Orthodontics became a popular textbook, being recommended for undergraduates and general practitioners with an interest in Orthodontics. Its concise, easily read and understood layout is repeated in the second edition... The problem with a book entitled 'An Introduction' is the level at which the information is pitched and the amount to be included. However, the book has achieved the right balance" --Dental Update
"It is the sort of book that benefits from being read from start to finish by the undergraduate as it covers everything (and more) that they will need for their exams... Anyone who is looking for contemporary orthodontic information suitable for undergraduates and general dental practitioners will find everything they need in this book. It should be available in every dental school library." --Journal of Orthodontics
