Orthodontics and paediatric dentistry are important areas of the undergraduate dental curriculum in which no pocket colour atlas currently exists. All dentists have to know how to treat children, how to carry out basic orthodontic treatment and when to refer patients for specialist orthodontic treatment. The vast majority of orthodontic work is carried out on children, so the two subjects are conveniently
integrated in this Colour Guide.
This practical resource addresses a range of clinical problems in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry and provides a step-by-step guide to differential diagnosis and treatment planning. Emphasizing clinical-problem solving, it helps readers combine different dental procedures into a rational plan of treatment for patients who may have a number of different dental problems that require attention.
