The number of adults receiving orthodontic treatment has increased over the last few years because of the development of more esthetic materials and more comfortable appliances and implants, as well as an overall improvement in dental and orthodontic education. In this comprehensive, profusely illustrated book, Dr. Harfin has combined a clear explanation of many important aspects of adult treatment with excellent line drawings and high-quality intra- and extraoral photographs.
The book is divided into 15 chapters--from basic biology and orthodontic materials to every conceivable type of case--each with an extensive bibliography. The importance of interdisciplinary treatment is demonstrated, and sections are also devoted to lingual orthodontics, stomatology, and patient relations. Collabo-rators include distinguished professionals such as Gisela Contasti, Mario Fiedotin, Jorge Frydman, Rafael Gutierrez, Nora Harfin, Andrea Kaplan, Roberto Lapenta and Augusto Urena, and Mariana Levy-Polack.
This book is written in Spanish, but should be translated into English, because it is a text that every practicing orthodontist should have at hand.
