Treatment and Stability
Open-Bite Malocclusion: Treatment and Stability presents the etiology, treatment, and its stability of anterior open bite malocclusion in the early, mixed, and permanent dentitions. Special emphasis is devoted to orthodontic treatment and its stability in the permanent dentition because this is the time when treatment of open bite presents greater relapse. Appropriate for clinicians, orthodontic residents, and dental students, Open-Bite Malocclusion covers the most simple treatment approaches to the most complex, from orthodontic devices to tooth extraction to surgery.
Over de auteurDr. Guilherme Janson is Professor of Orthodontics at Bauru Dental School, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. His three primary lines of research are asymmetric malocclusions, efficiency of Class II malocclusion treatment protocols, and stability of open bite treatment. He has authored and co-authored more than sixty peer-reviewed journal articles on these subjects.
