This book provides essential knowledge for creating treatment plans for adult dental patients. Treatment planning strategies are presented to help with balancing the ideal with the practical, with emphasis placed on the central role of the patient — whose needs should drive the treatment planning process. The focus is on planning of treatment, not on the comprehensive details of every treatment modality in dentistry. CD-ROM bound into book presents five cases of varying difficulty with interactive exercises that allow users to plan treatment. What's the Evidence? boxes link clinical decision-making and treatment planning strategies to current research. In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist. Review Questions and Suggested Projects, located at the end of each chapter, summarize and reinforce important concepts presented in the book. Key Terms and Glossary highlights the terms that are most important to the reader. Suggested Readings lists included at the end of most chapters provide supplemental resources. Chapter on Treatment Planning for Smokers and Patients with Oral Cancer addresses the dentist's role in managing patients with oral cancer, recognizing oral cancer and differential diagnosis of oral lesions, planning treatment for patients undergoing cancer therapy, and smoking cessation strategies. Chapter on Treatment Planning for the Special Care/Special Needs Patient examines the role of the general dentist in the management of patients with a variety of conditions including physical handicaps, mental handicaps, head trauma, hemophilia, and patients' needs before, during, or after major surgery. Chapter on Treatment Planning for the Alcohol and Substance Abuser discusses the challenges of treating this patient population, as well as how to recognize the problem, delivery of care, scope of treatment, and behavioral/compliance issues. Expanded content on Ethical and Legal Issues in Treatment Planning reflects new accreditation guidelines. Dental Team Focus boxes highlight the relevance of chapter content to the dental team. Ethics Topics boxes emphasize the ethical topics found within each chapter. International Tooth Numbering is listed alongside the U.S. tooth numbers in examples and illustrations.

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning in Orthognathic Surgery

The human face should be in perfect harmony and balance along with ideal functioning of the stomatognathic system... was a view idealised by Apollo Belvedere, who created the neoclassical Greek sculpture of the head and face. However, Nature ensures that all of us are not blessed with perfect faces. It is for the resolution of these imperfections that orthodontic treatment is sought. But for patients whose problems are so severe that neither growth nor camouflage offers an ideal solution, surgical realignment of jaws or repositioning of dentoalveolar segments is the only choice. Surgery is not a substitute for orthodontics in these patients; instead, it must be properly coordinated with orthodontics and other dental treatment to achieve overall positive results. With recent advances in surgical technology, it is now possible to treat these patients successfully for whom orthodontic camouflage would have resulted in esthetically unacceptable and often unstable results. This art and science of diagnosis, treatment planning, and execution of treatment of dentofacial deformities by combining orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery to correct severe musculoskeletal, dento-osseous, and soft tissue deformities of the jaws and associated structures is called orthognathic surgery. Successful orthognathic surgery demands the understanding and cooperation of the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, orthodontist, and general dentist. Each must provide a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, perform necessary treatment and refer to necessary treatment outside his or her respective area of expertise. In order for patients to receive state-of-art care when correcting their deformities, the orthognathic team must: 1. recognise the various characteristics of malocclusion and dento-facial deformity; 2. define the nature of the problem, including the possible etiology; and 3. design a treatment strategy based on the specific needs and desires of the individual. In this modern era, the role of the doctor has shifted from that of sole decision maker in the planning process to that of a partner with the patient as co-decision-maker. Therefore, the clinician must not overlook the importance of including the patient and parents in the treatment planning process. Ackermann and Proffit have suggested that clinicians are generally more influenced by objective findings (problem list) and patients are more influenced by subjective findings (their perception of their needs and values). This dichotomy makes communication an effective tool when one is faced with the decision between orthodontic camouflage and surgical orthodontic correction. The authors' of this book examine the diagnosis and treatment planning in orthognathic surgery.

This text provides state-of-the-art reference on the successful application of biomechanics in clinical orthodontics. It features comprehensive guidance on basic biomechanic principles to orthodontic problem resolution by focusing on the fundamentals. Also including new, cutting edge topics, this book shows how all techniques can apply biomechanical principles to improve the force delivery, understand and prevent side effects, and achieve predictable results. Full-color illustrations help the reader visualize and grasp key concepts. Line drawings accompany clinical photos to clarify important information and techniques. Chapters are organized from the most common to least common orthodontic problems, creating an easy-to-follow layout that makes the topics easy to find. Inclusion of cutting edge topics such as skeletal anchorage, esthetic concepts, interdisciplinary treatment, biomechanical factors, biology of tooth movement, and management of orthodontic problems presents current trends in orthodontics. Information on the latest advances in the use, selection, and properties of orthodontic wires exhibits all viable options for important decision-making. Comprehensive coverage of diagnosis, treatment planning, and biomechanical strategies provides knowledge of how to apply specific mechanisms to specific problems. Simplified approach makes biomechanics easy to understand and implement. Presentation of nonextraction treatment modalities explains how to use headgear, Herbst appliances, memory alloy springs, and other methods to yield predictable results. Solid information on treating malocclusion shows readers how simple changes in arch wire bending can greatly improve tooth movement quality.
