This book is the Course Manual for Academy of Fixed Orthodontics (AFO) courses in Orthodontics for the general dental practitioner and has been written exclusively for the general dentist who wants to incorporate fixed orthodontics into their practice. Towards this goal the course manual is a concise treatise on the study and practice of fixed orthodontics in general and explains in particular, the technique of MBTTM prescription of preadjusted edgewise appliance system (Straight WireTM). Within about 100 pages of text amply illustrated with color photographs and line drawings, the reader is introduced to the basics of orthodontic theory and practice. Biomechanics of tooth movement and the theory behind the preadjusted appliance system is given in brief. Basic instruments and materials for the fixed orthodontic practice is presented with photographs. Diagnosis and Treatment planning using Clinical tools, Cephalometrics and cast analysis is explained in enough detail. Banding and Bonding of the appliance and wire changes through planned sequence are presented succinctly. Each type of clinical cases (malocclusion) and the extraction and non-extraction methods to be followed is explained in detail. The chapter on Standard Operating Protocol gives the reader the entire steps in practice of straight wire fixed orthodontics in just 3 pages. Four pages of sample Cast Analysis form allows for a thorough practice and at the end of the book few blank pages are given so that the reader can write any notes if needed. All these features make this a unique handbook and desktop reference for the dentist who would like to lean fixed orthodontics. As this is a course manual, it is highly recommended to take up the entire Academy of Fixed Orthodontics course, which is supported by Videos and Lectures and effective post course mentoring. The concepts and implementation of this course will allow the participant to choose the content and period of study that best suits her practice. The course also teaches the latest in fixed orthodontic treatment mechanics including Tip-Edge, Lingual Orthodontics, Orthodontic Mini-Screws and the Self Ligating systems. The course is designed in such a way that the participant can easily understand the basics and will confidently be able to incorporate fixed orthodontics in the general practice. This is a handbook for the clinical practice of fixed orthodontics and is not a textbook on the subject.

In ihrem neuen Buch "Behandlungskonzept der vorprogrammierten Apparatur - Systematisierte Straight-Wire-Technik" (Original: Systemized Orthodontic Treatment Mechanics) führen die Autoren den Leser Schritt für Schritt durch alle Phasen einer kieferorthopädischen Behandlung mit einer modifizierten Straight-wire-Apparatur. Sie beginnen mit einem kurzen geschichtlichen Überblick über die Weiterentwicklung der Edgewise-Technik und ihre eigene Modifizierung der Ansätze von Andrews und Roth. Aus ihren Neuerungen im Bracketdesign, bei der Positionierung der Brackets, dem Spektrum der Bogenformen und den angewandten Kräften haben sie ein Gesamtkonzept erarbeitet, in dem diese Einzelelemente vielseitig und effektiv aufeinander abgestimmt sind, um dem Behandler bei maximalem Behandlungserfolg Zeit und Kosten zu ersparen. Ab Kapitel 3 schaut der Leser dem erfahrenen Autorenteam gleichsam bei der Arbeit am Patienten über die Schulter. Zu Themen wie Patientenführung und -betreuung, Diskussion des Bondingverfahrens, Bracketpositionierung, Molarenbebänderung und die Frage der Verankerung in der Nivellierungsphase gibt es ebenso ausführliche Hinweise und manch wertvolle Tipps wie zur Auswahl des Bogens. An eine Liste zur Grundausstattung mit Bögen, die überflüssige Anschaffungen vermeiden hilft, haben sie ebenso gedacht wie an Musterbriefe, mit denen der Patient durch die Retentionsphase geleitet wird. Zu den Behandlungsmöglichkeiten bei Tiefbiss sowie bei Prognathie und Progenie gibt es jeweils eigene Kapitel. Auch hier steht das praktische Vorgehen im Vordergrund. So erhält der Leser beispielsweise Hilfestellung bei der Frage, wann ein chirurgischer Eingriff unumgänglich ist, und wird auf mögliche Fehlerquellen bei der Einschätzung des Falles und seiner Entwicklung aufmerksam gemacht. In den folgenden Kapiteln werden ausführlich die geeigneten Vorrichtungen zum Lückenschluss und die abschließenden Korrekturen in der Justierungsphase besprochen. Das Buch endet mit dem Vorgehen beim Entfernen der Apparaturen - wobei auch das Problem der Schmelzflecken nicht ausgespart wird -, der Vorstellung verschiedener Retainer und Überlegungen zur Länge der Retentionsphase. Der Schwerpunkt des Buches liegt auf dem Behandlungskonzept der Autoren, dessen Praxistauglichkeit und Effizienz für ein breites Spektrum von Fehlstellungen aufgezeigt wird. Dabei stehen Praxisbezug und systematisches Vorgehen im Vordergrund. Dies spiegelt sich auch im Aufbau des Buches und den gut gegliederten Kapiteln wider. Der Text ist klar und leicht verständlich. Außerdem wird fast jeder Abschnitt in einprägsamen Diagrammen bildlich umgesetzt und dem Leser somit im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes "vor Augen geführt". Dies gilt natürlich besonders für die zahlreichen Fallbeispiele, bei denen der Behandlungsablauf Schritt für Schritt in eindrucksvollen Farbfotos, Röntgenbildern, Behandlungs- und Vermessungsschemata dokumentiert ist. Eine Stärke des Buches liegt im didaktisch perfekten Aufbau. Der kieferorthopädisch tätige Leser wird vor allem vom Erfahrungsschatz der Autoren und der praxisbezogenen Darstellung profitieren - das Buch ist anschaulicher und informativer als manches Fortbildungsseminar. Einen umfassenden Überblick oder eine schulenübergreifende Darstellung aller festsitzenden kieferorthopädischen Apparaturen darf er jedoch nicht erwarten.
