Book Description

For more than 100 years, orthodontists have strived to identify and utilize methods to expedite orthodontic treatment. Most of the current approaches aimed at achieving this goal rely primarily on physical or surgical techniques and mechanical devices that recently have gained prominence in the field. However, there is limited cohesive, comprehensive and objective information on the efficacy of many of these approaches for expediting orthodontic treatment. Furthermore, the use of novel technologies and biomedicine in efficient delivery of orthodontic treatment has not been realized fully.

The 41st Annual Moyers Symposium and Presymposium provided clinically relevant updates on this intriguing and, in some instances, controversial topic. In this monograph, the authors present historical perspectives, scientific evidence and clinical observations on a range of topics including the contribution of appliance design and physical, surgical and biomedical approaches to expedite orthodontic treatment.
