methods for treating certain dentofacial deformities with distraction
current information on integrated treatment, where the orthodontist, the

case studies visually take the reader from pre-treatment to post-treatment
for the many techniques taught in the book.

with surgery and orthodontics.
colorful cephalometric tracings to illustrate the before-and-after results
