This book follows on from the authors' previous Invisible Orthodontics (2003) and charts the rapid evolution of the lingual technique using the new STb Light Lingual System and Lingual Straight Wire. A large portion of the book is dedicated to the characteristics and benefits of low-friction forces using STb, the first variable-friction lingual bracket. The new STb bracket has been designed to improve patient comfort and give better clinical results and shorter treatment times. Furthermore, the growing worldwide demand for esthetic orthodontic treatment is encouraging more practitioners to exploit this technique. A complete description of extractive and non-extractive mechanics, including the improvements in absolute anchorage control, completes this book.

This book is designed to meet the needs of all orthodontists interested in treating children, adolescents, and/or adults with brackets placed on the palatal and lingual surfaces of the teeth. It explains how to achieve excellent results, comparable to those obtained with labial brackets, by means of techniques performed entirely within the dental office and avoiding use of expensive outside laboratories. The book is divided into three parts. The first is devoted to biomechanics, considering each type of malocclusion and describing how to prepare the arches optimally. This is not a theoretical section; rather it covers aspects acknowledged to be of prime practical importance by students and doctors. The second part explains how to treat the most common malocclusions, with step-by-step descriptions of techniques used in everyday clinical practice. The concluding part of the book describes finishing procedures to enhance aesthetics and discusses long-term results.

The orthodontic setup is meant to provide a three-dimensional representation of the occlusion at the end of treatment. Although the orthodontic setup was first described by Kesling in 1945 and has since then become an indispensible tool for diagnosis and the construction of customized appliances, there are no standardized guidelines that are approved and used by professional organizations and manufacturers. This makes it very difficult for orthodontists to provide orthodontic technicians with precise objective information on the final position of the teeth. Orthodontic technicians must therefore draw on their personal experience, know-how, and best professional practices—in short, a series of unwritten rules that are by no means universal. With this in mind, the authors have set out to describe the procedures used in the construction and evaluation of a setup that can be used both for diagnostic purposes and to manufacture customized orthodontic appliances. The manual and digital tools currently available to professionals in this field are discussed, with a particular focus on the recent developments in CAD/CAM bracket-positioning technology.

This book describes the most common types of malocclusion in children and presents illustrated step-by-step guidance on the procedures employed in their management, with the focus on early intervention. Advice is provided on the challenging decisions of when to start orthodontic treatment and whether to choose a one-phase or a two-phase treatment, taking into account the malocclusion, its severity, and its etiology. Among the topics addressed in individual chapters are the treatment of atypically rotated central incisors, early management of periodontal problems, correction and maintenance of the position of the first upper molar, early treatment of class II and class III malocclusions, use of lingual brackets, management of dental asymmetries, and the Bennun-Harfin protocol for interdisciplinary oral cleft treatment. The most important controversies in early orthodontic treatment are also discussed in detail. The book is enhanced by numerous clinical photographs and presentation of long-term results. It is written by the most experienced team of doctors in the field and will be a valuable asset for all who specialize in odonto-pediatric and orthopedic-orthodontic treatments.
