"Orthodontic Treatment of Class III Malocclusion is a clinical textbook which highlights both research findings as well as clinical treatment of patients with Class III malocclusions. The volume equips readers with a critical review of present information about 1) the craniofacial biology behind various treatment strategies, 2) Diagnosis and treatment planning in both growing and non-growing Class III patients and 3) Contemporary orthodontic appliances using implants and miniscrews. The book is divided into sections proving evidence-based research on the following aspects of Class III malocclusions: the genetic and epigenetic factors contemporary diagnosis and treatment planning for patients early treatment of Class III problems treatment of Class III problems in the adolescents surgical treatment of adult Class III patients treatment of Class III problems in patients with craniofacial anomalies Orthodontic Treatment of Class III Malocclusion will empower clinicians with a sound knowledge about rationale for using certain treatment modalities and will help both general practitioners and specialists such as pediatric dentists and orthodontists to use this information for their daily practice."

This work provides a source of information for a field that requires knowledge of basic elements of materials science, engineering, chemistry, and physics, as well as clinical orthodontics. It investigates the interactions of orthodontic materials with other dental materials.
The initial eight chapters provide a synthesis of the wide variety of treatments currently available for malocclusions in the sagittal, transverse, and vertical dimensions. The subsequent chapters describe the details of clinical management of fixed appliance therapy (e.g., bracket placement and design - including self-ligating brackets, orthodontic bonding, archwire sequencing, transpalatal arch and utility arch management). Dentofacial orthopedics, including rapid maxillary expansion and extraoral traction, as well as functional jaw orthopedics (Herbst, Twin Block, FR-2 of Fränkel, Bionator) and molar distalizing appliances (Pendulum, Distal Jet, Wilson distalizing arch) then are considered. The management of Class III malocclusion with the orthopedic facial mask, the chin cup and the FR-3 of Fränkel also are discussed in detail. The book also includes two extensive chapters on interdisciplinary treatment written by Vincent G. Kokich, as well as chapters on finishing and retention protocols. The clinical and cephalometric evaluation of the orthodontic patient and the relationship of orthodontic treatment, occlusion, and temporomandibular disorders also are presented. In essence, this book represents an extensive continuing education experience for the practicing orthodontist.
