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.
