There's a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways? Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. Jaws will change your life. Every parent should read this book.

Tooth Movement

With the intention of improving the rate, quality, and stability of orthodontic tooth movement, those in the field are now moving toward accomplishing this 'acceleration' with minimally or non-invasive methods. New procedures have been widely tested in humans, animal models, and in vitro. While interest is growing both in the industry and at the clinical level, the understanding of the biology is limited. Considering that a simple increase in force will result in tooth morbidity and arrest of the tooth migration, a multi-disciplinary approach is critical for success. This publication brings together multi-disciplinary expertise on a wide variety of processes related to and involved in orthodontic tooth movement. The premise is that, by better understanding the biological structures and the mechanism through which they respond to biomechanical forces, one can get a better assessment of the 'acceleration'. This work presents research aimed at an improved understanding of conventional and accelerated orthodontic tooth movement from a biological perspective and will be of great value to clinicians, researchers, academics, and students.

:Written by a broad spectrum of dental, medical and basic science researchers from around the world, this book presents state-of-the-art knowledge concerning the biology of connective tissues and their response to exogenous mechanical stimulation at the cell biology level. The text goes well beyond the traditional morphologic descriptions of tooth movement, covering the cell biology of the connective tissues involved, the various in vitro and in vivo research models, possible pharmacological means of influencing tissue responses, and biophysical considerations. Many cellular events that occur during tooth movement are discussed, as well as the exciting challenges, unanswered questions and possibilities in the future. This publication is extremely relevant to the work of dental specialists in orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics plus orthopeadists and basic scientists working in connective tissue research.
