Description

This case-based clinical text is an exhaustive review of orthodontic problems in the vertical dimension, with evidence-based guidelines for successful diagnosis and treatment. A total of 21 cases address dental deep bites, skeletal deep bites, dental open bites, skeletal open bites, and posterior open bites. Each case includes pretreatment, interim, and posttreatment orthodontic records, as well as references to provide a solid evidence base for decision making. Written with a clinical focus, Orthodontics in the Vertical Dimension is ideal for the practicing orthodontist and makes an excellent resource for residents in pursuit of board certification.

Key Features

• Detailed case-based scenarios for treatment of the spectrum of open bites and deep bites

• Cases presented in question and answer format to encourage thought

• 2500 clinical photographs and illustrations.

“This is a great textbook, and I will use it in my classes. Highly organized and elaborately illustrated, the authors’ work is inspired by problem-based learning and stimulates cognitive processes by encouraging critical thinking. Their text deserves a ‘must read’ category for orthodontic professionals of all ages.”

Dr. Jeryl D. English DDS, MS, Chairman and Graduate Program Director, Department of Orthodontics, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

“A terrific book for students of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, covering the vertical dimension and much more. A wide range of cases are presented, treatment plans are realistic, and the authors openly discuss complications encountered during treatment.”

Dr. Greg J. Huang, DMD, MSD, MPH Professor and Chair Department of Orthodontics, The University of Washington School of Dentistry

“This comprehensive text prepares the reader in the context of a mini-residency with a question answer teaching style. Resident and experienced orthodontists can match their cases with fully worked up patients and alternative treatment options. Well written.”

Dr. Katherine L. Vig, BDS, MS, FDS, D.Orth Professor Emeritus and Former Head of Orthodontics, The Ohio State University College of Dentistry

""The profession of orthodontics is largely a discipline of observation, reasoning, and decision-making. This book aims at strengthening those in-treatment decision abilities. It is perfect both for orthodontic residents just learning their technique and for experienced clinicians interested in improving their proficiency. I promise it will be one of the most remarkable books you have ever read.""
