Biological Mechanisms of Tooth Movement is the comprehensive reference for trainees and specialists to the scientific background of orthodontics and more specifically, the biological responses to the application of mechanical loads.
Written by an international team of expert contributors and highly illustrated throughout, this book covers key topics including bone biology, the effects of mechanical loading on tissues and cells, genetics, inflammation, tissue remodeling and the effects of diet, drugs and systemic diseases.

Dr. Vinod Krishnan is Assistant Professor in the Department
of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, Rajas Dental College, Tamilnadu,
India. He has numerous publications to his credit in the field of tooth movement
biology and serves as a reviewer for various international orthodontic journals.
Dr Ze'ev Davidovitch is Professor Emeritus at Harvard University. He is a world authority in the field of orthodontic tooth movement. Since 1988 he has organized eight international conferences on the biology of tooth movement and edited the books of the proceedings, each containing 45-60 full length articles.
