This book is well illustrated with over 2500 photographs and line diagrams. It is the first textbook to elaborate on the materials used in routine orthodontic practice.The various techniques used have been presented in brief, to give the students and general practitioners alike, an idea as to what is possible using orthodontics alone and which malocclusions require the intervention from other allied branches of dentistry.
