Three Dimensional Imaging for Orthodontics and Maxillofacial Surgery is a major new specialist resource that identifies and applies the principles of three dimensional imaging to orthodontic practice. Readers are introduced to three-dimensional imaging, comparing it with the traditional two-dimensional assessments and exploring the benefits and drawbacks of these imaging modalities. Three Dimensional Imaging for Orthodontics and Maxillofacial Surgery centers on the appropriate application of three-dimensional imaging in the various practices related to orthodontic delivery and craniofacial surgery. The book guides the reader through detailed and illustrated examples of three-dimensional patient management in the context of daily practice. Both three-dimensional static and motion analyses are explored. The book also addresses growth, orthodontic treatment and surgical prediction, both static and dynamic and explores the use of morphing and finite element analyses with particular focus on surgical intervention. A key resource for specialist working in the fields of orthodontics and cranio-maxillofacial surgery.
