Now in its third edition, “Biological Mechanisms of Tooth Movement” continues to be an authoritative reference to the scientific foundations of clinical orthodontics.
This new edition features seven sections that cover subjects such as:
• the development of biological concepts in orthodontics, including the cellular and molecular biology behind orthodontic tooth movement
• mechanics meets biology, including the effects of mechanical loading on hard and soft tissues and cells, and biological reactions to temporary anchorage devices
• inflammation and orthodontics, including markers for tissue remodeling in the gingival crevicular fluid and saliva
• personalized diagnosis and treatment based on genomic criteria, including the genetic influences on orthodontic tooth movement
• rapid orthodontics, including methods to accelerate or decelerate orthodontic tooth movement.
“Biological Mechanisms of Tooth Movement” is heavily illustrated throughout, making it easier for readers to understand and retain the information discussed.
Perfect for residents and PhD students of orthodontic and periodontal programs, this book is a useful reference for academics, clinicians, bone biologists, and researchers.
