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 colour plates. 'Fixed Orthodontic Appliances' should be essential reading for any graduate commencing orthodontic training, as well as for the interest
