This handbook provides a short, contemporary text on the management of dentofacial deformities. The importance of a well organised, inter-disciplinary approach is emphasised throughout and the following key areas are presented: -A detailed account of the role of the psychologist, from initial assessment through to post-operative support. -A systematic approach to dentofacial assessment, including a section on diagnostic records and an overview of cephalometry. -A logical step-by-step approach to treatment planning, emphasising the interactive thought process required when setting orthodontic and surgical objectives. -The fundamentals of surgical orthodontics, with the scope and limitations of orthodontic appliances clearly explained for each phase of treatment. -A description of orthognathic technical procedures and how potential errors can be minimised in order to improve the accuracy of model surgery. -An account of how to carry out photo-cephalometric profile prediction planning, including a critique of the method. -A detailed description of the full range of mandibular and maxillary orthognathic surgical procedures, including indications and complications. -A chapter on higher-level osteotomies for the treatment of more severe craniofacial abnormalities is included for completeness. -A series of six contrasting case studies. There is an emphasis on the technological advances that are rapidly enabling the global paradigm shift from 2D to 3D planning.
