REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION:
"Removable Orthodontic Appliances is an excellent basic resource for students, orthodontists, and dental practitioners, giving a good, broad overview of what can be accomplished with removable appliances and what is involved in putting them to effective use. Their advantages over fixed appliances -- most obviously for space maintenance, but also in many cases where anchorage is an issue -- mean that there will always be cases where it is preferable to use them, and so some familiarity with their use is essential to anyone practising orthodontics. The book also gives a good idea of what is involved in using removable appliances in orthodontic treatment, from their design and fabrication to what practitioners should be particularly alert to, as well as some of the patient issues involved in their use."
