Twin Block appliances are simple bite blocks that are designed for full-time wear. They achieve rapid functional correction of malocclusion (misalignment of upper and lower teeth) by the transmission of favourable occlusal forces to occlusal inclined planes that cover the posterior teeth. The forces of occlusion are used as the functional mechanism to correct the malocclusion (www.twinblocks.com). Beginning with an introduction to orthodontics and twin blocks, the next chapters describe growth studies and diagnosis and treatment planning. Each of the following sections discusses the use of twin blocks for different types of malocclusion. With a focus on the latest developments in functional therapy, the book offers guidance on diagnosis, treatment planning, case selection, appliance design and clinical management. Written by the internationally recognised Orthodontist William Clark from Fife, UK, who also invented Twin Blocks, this comprehensive guide includes nearly 600 clinical photographs and illustrations. Key points Comprehensive guide to use of Twin Blocks in treatment of malocclusion Focus on latest developments in functional therapy Written by UK-based inventor of Twin Blocks Includes nearly 600 images and illustrations

Dentofacial orthopaedics is a term describing the treatment of malocclusion, or misalignment of the jaws. Such misalignment can cause difficulty with speech, chewing and sometimes breathing, as well as leading to an undesirable facial profile. Dentofacial orthopaedics is distinct from orthodontics, which is concerned with correcting the relative positions of the teeth themselves rather than the jaws.

King Georges Medical University and The Georgians King Georges Medical College (KGMC), now a University (KGMU), is one of the oldest medical institutions in India. Its foundation stone was laid in 1905 and the first batch of medical students was admitted in 1911. It was built by generous donations from eminent persons of the state of Oudh with their vision that the College should be the best in the East. With time, the College added departments, infrastructure, buildings and faculty and its alumni are called The Georgians. The Georgians have made name for themselves and their alma mater. The older buildings are in the Indo-Saracenic style, in keeping with ancient and royal buildings of this capital of Oudh. Some of these building have been declared as national heritage. KGMU has a sprawling campus, spread about 25 acres and is crossed by the River Gomti, two national highways, a railway line and a satellite campus soon to begin. The college was upgraded to a University in September 2002. Today KGMU ranks number one among state government funded institutions for medical and dental education in India. KGMU is the dream destination of undergraduate and post-graduate medical aspirants. This institution has been known for its teachers and unique style of teaching, a mixture of problem based and integrated styles, with a strong tradition of mentorship and bonding. The current Vice Chancellor is Prof. Ravi Kant, a Georgian. Under Prof Ravi Kants leadership, the University has seen a renaissance in the field of medical education. This KGMU Book of Clinical Cases is a set of two sister books, one for Medical Sciences and the other for Dental Sciences. These books showcase the academic experience and expertise of faculty and residents for continuing education of medical and dental fraternity.

This book presents readers with the information necessary to understand the morphogenesis of orthodontic problems, to differentiate among various conditions, and to apply early intervention approaches to optimal effect. Through integration of basic science and clinical practice, detailed case reports, and abundant illustrations, the author: * Provides an overview of dental development, from tooth formation to permanent occlusion. * Emphasizes the developmental stages that must be recognized during patient examination to facilitate differential diagnosis. * Presents clear, step-by-step instructions for different treatment options. * Demonstrates the benefits achieved by intervention in developing malocclusions and guidance of eruption. The discussions in part 1 of the concept of early-age treatment and the basic foundation of occlusal development empower practitioners to detect anomalies and intervene as necessary. Part 2 consists of chapters explaining the ontogeny, diagnosis, and early detection of, as well as the proper intervention for, nonskeletal problems. Part 3 includes chapters on early intervention for dentoskeletal problems in the sagittal, transverse, and vertical dimensions. This book cuts through the controversy surrounding early versus late treatment and shows that clinicians must decide on a case-by-case basis when to provide orthodontic treatment.
