Dentofacial orthopaedics is a term describing the treatment of malocclusion, or misalignment of the jaws. Such misalignment can cause difficulty with speech, chewing and sometimes breathing, as well as leading to an undesirable facial profile. Dentofacial orthopaedics is distinct from orthodontics, which is concerned with correcting the relative positions of the teeth themselves rather than the jaws. This book is a case-orientated manual of this technique, illustrated with over 800 photographs, radiographs and line drawings. A feature of the book is the sequence of computer generated artwork derived from radiographs, which show the progressive effect of treament over time. These, combined with case histories and clinical photographs, provide a practical resource for specialists.
