The objective of this book is to enable the student or practitioner of dentistry to learn the essentials and fundamentals underlying the diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment of basic orthodontic target disorders. The book is divided into sections to roughly coincide with the four years of dental education. This does not imply any absolute necessity of sequencing of studies but is meant only to represent, by way of an outline, one sequence of viewing the orthodontic heuristic process.

Section I, Growth and Development, contains five basic growth and development chapters, encompassing Developmental, Psychosocial, Behavioral and Compliance Aspects of Care, Prenatal Craniofacial Development. Postnatal Craniofacial Development, Growth of the Craniofacial Skeleton and Development of the Dentition and Occlusion. These chapters represent typical courses that relate to orthodontics found in the first or second years of dental school.

Section II, Foundations for Orthodontics, covers Classification and Terminology, Etiology of Malocclusion. Force Systems and Tissue Response, Tissue Engineering in Orthodontics, and Clinical Epidemiology and Malocclusion. This material is typically taught in the first, second or third years of dental school.

Section III, titled Examination and Diagnosis, covers Orthodontic Exam and Diagnosis, Analysis of Orofacial and Jaw Musculature, Analysis of Dentition and Occlusion, Dental Dysmorphogenesis, Analysis of the Orofacial Skeleton and Planning Orthodontic Treatment. This material is usually taught in the second or third years of dental school previous to clinical rotations.

Section IV, titled Treatment and Effects, covers Preadolescent Treatment, Adolescent Treatment, Adult Treatment, Treatment of Patients with Craniofacial Anomalies, Retention, Relapse, and The Recurrence of Malocclusion, and The Adverse Effects of Orthodontic Treatment. Each chapter author has tried to create a chapter that represents a balanced approach to their topic while emphasizing facts in light of any substantive new approaches to their topic area.

The book's contributors are made up of a well-known group of university-based professionals who represent 13 schools and 19 departments. The book was two years in its design and the last one and a half years in production and editing. During this time each author continued to follow the literature to ensure that new important information was incorporated into the text. Every chapter has been constructed and sequenced to integrally fit the text. The authors recognize the weaknesses of a multiple author text: a lack of continuity of thought and format. We have worked hard to achieve the mind-meld of the "Unimind". Each of the authors has worked tirelessly to create an error-free text, but with little expectation that this miracle will occur.

The format of the text is unique in that the chapter outlines are paginated, the glossary terms are emboldened in every chapter of the text and the chapter headings are graphically tied to each section, giving a positive visual reference to the chapters. A full color presentation adds to the book by enhancing the clinical cases and clarifying the histologic sections. All chapter authors have followed the suggestion to place all figures on facing pages with text to make the book's use easier. Chapters and topics that are unique for an orthodontic text are 1, 5, 9, 10, 14, 21 and 22. (Developmental, Psychosocial, Behavioral and Compliance Aspects of Care, Development of the Dentition and Occlusion, Tissue Engineering in Orthodontics, Clinical Epidemiology and Malocclusion, Dental Dysmorphogenesis, Retention, Relapse, and The Recurrence of Malocclusion, and The Adverse Effects of Orthodontic Treatment).
