Book Description

The development of more sophisticated technology and the refinement of surgical techniques have led to an ever increasing array of surgical protocols that can be used to enhance orthodontic treatment outcomes. Such technologies include the use of the diode laser by the orthodontist for re-contouring the gingival and mucosal soft tissue to more extensive interventions such as guided tissue and bone regeneration and the sinus lift prior to implant placement provided by other specialty disciplines. Similarly, facial plastic and reconstructive surgery has shown a development of surgical and non-surgical protocols for improving the soft and hard tissues of the face, both of the routine orthodontic patient and of those individuals with major facial imbalances. A final type of patient, the severity of whose breathing problem now is being addressed more aggressively both surgically and non-surgically, is the obstructive sleep apnea sufferer.
