Product Description:
Unique in the field, this new reference provides up-to-the-minute coverage of the fast-growing areas of esthetic orthodontic treatment planning, orthognathic surgery, and computerized videoimaging technology. Its multidiscliplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment details the best that each specialty (orthodontic, orthognathic, and facial plastic) has to offer. Excellent coverage of soft-tissue growth differentiates between contemporary orthodontic treatment planning in growing patients (youths and adolescents) and maturing patients (adults and aging adults). Principles of facial soft-tissue surgical options are presented in detail, making this text the perfect choice for maximizing the esthetic outcome of orthodontic cases and combined orthodontic and orthognathic cases.

Includes 460 color illustrations of "before, during, and after," including shots of the computerized videoimaging process, to demonstrate treatment planning and patient results in an immediate, highly visual manner. Features case studies that take the reader through diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment of adults, youths, and adolescents, discussing a multidisciplinary approach to care. Presents the basics of computerized videoimaging technology and how it is used for diagnosis, treatment planning, testing of various treatment options, and communication with patients. Thorough coverage gives a good understanding of how this technology works, its strengths, and its weaknesses, helping the reader determine its role in his or her practice. Covers applications of computerized imaging technology, including the use of digital records instead of photography and radiographs, information on data-base management, and highly efficient and descriptive information transfer. Provides treatment planning worksheets tied directly to the computer information management systems discussed in the text -- a ready-made template to use when diagnosing and planning patient treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Awesome!, December 05, 2012
By Sonny Long
This outstanding book ushered in a new paradigm in orthodontics. Dr. Sarver beautifully and credibly demonstrates why treating patients based on facial and smile esthetic goals will consistently produce significantly better results than assuming patients will look good if you straightening their teeth and correcting their bites. If you are interested in learning from the master, this book is the place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Better Book for patients at, October 26, 2004
By Sam Watts (Cincinnati,OH USA)

I think this particular book is great for doctors & medical staff. But if you are a patient or care giver then read "How to survive orthognathic surgery" by Sach Silva. This book was great help for me besides my wife.

The "How to survive orthognathic surgery" book is available from

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Milestone of Orthognathic Excellence!, March 29, 1999
By A customer
I purchased this book to learn about the oral surgery which my mother was undergoing. After reading through the only small section I had intended to I became enthralled with the excellent graphics and common sense intellect. I ended up reading the whole thing, twice! This is not just a book for future surgeons it is a book for everyone interested in the intricacies of facial surgery. I highly recommend this book!
