The following list of Orthodontics books includes literature published since 2000. Professionals in this specialty have to read this collection of books. Pricing and layout are subject to change by sellers on Amazon.


1. Contemporary Orthodontics (2018) The leading text for orthodontic education! With a world-renowned author team led by Dr. William Proffit, Contemporary Orthodontics, 6th Edition continues its long tradition of excellence in providing detailed coverage of orthodontic diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment techniques. 

Key topics include practical applications of computer technology, alternative treatment approaches, the biomechanics of orthodontic appliances, the selection of efficient treatment procedures, and the treatment of complex problems in both children and adults. A wealth of case studies with photographs and illustrations highlight and reinforce key concepts.

2. Orthodontics: Current Principles and Techniques (2016) Comprehensive, cutting-edge content prepares you for today’s orthodontics! Orthodontics: Current Principles and Techniques, 6th Edition provides evidence-based coverage of orthodontic diagnosis, planning strategies, and treatment protocols, including esthetics, genetics, temporary anchorage devices, aligners, technology-assisted biomechanics, and much more. 

New to this edition is an Expert Consult website using videos and additional visuals to show concepts difficult to explain with words alone. Expert Consult also adds three online-only chapters, research updates, and a fully searchable version of the text.

3. Temporary Anchorage Devices in Clinical Orthodontics (2020) Written by some of the world’s leading experts in orthodontics, Temporary Anchorage Devices in Clinical Orthodontics is a comprehensive, up-to-date reference that covers all aspects of temporary anchorage device (TAD) use in contemporary orthodontics. 

Taking a real-world approach to the subject, it covers topics ranging from diagnosis and treatment planning to the many applications and management of complications. Case studies demonstrate the concepts, and high-quality clinical photographs support the text throughout.


4. The Biomechanical Foundation of Clinical Orthodontics (2015) All orthodontic treatment modalities can be improved by the application of sound biomechanics, yet most orthodontic therapy today is delivered without consideration of forces or force systems. 

Orthodontic hardware itself is only a means to an end point, such as tooth alignment, home remodeling, or growth modifications; the orthodontist can achieve these goals only by manipulating forces, regardless of the techniques used. Written by a world-renowned authority on the subject, this book teaches biomechanics in an easy-to-understand and engaging way, using universal examples outside orthodontics to illustrate basic force systems and how they function and then applying these principles to the practice of clinical orthodontics.

5. Aligner Orthodontics: Diagnostics, Biomechanics, Planning and Treatment (2015) This book presents useful tips and strategies on how to integrate the Invisalign system successfully into clinical practice. The authors review the diagnostic protocols and the biomechanics of aligners before presenting Invisalign treatment protocols. 

With the support of accompanying case documentation, discussion of each malocclusion includes information of the associated symptoms, the rationale behind the selected treatment approaches, and the various outcomes achieved. The last section of this book deals with the advantages of the Invisalign system and can help patients and clinicians in deciding whether this system can provide optimal treatment outcomes for a particular clinical situation. This is a practical manual for any clinician interested in the novel treatment modality of aligner orthodontics.

6. Handbook of Orthodontics (2015) The second edition of the popular Handbook of Orthodontics continues to offer readers a highly accessible introduction to the subject of clinical orthodontics. 

Comprehensive and compact, this book is ideal for dental undergraduates, postgraduate students of orthodontics and orthodontic therapists, as well as general dental practitioners with an interest in the field.

7. Orthodontic and Surgical Management of Impacted Teeth (2014) Impacted teeth are a commonplace encounter in dental practice, yet currently there is not a comprehensive book detailing the surgical treatments and orthodontic therapy to erupt or manage these teeth. 

Written by arguably the best orthodontist in the world and his periodontist colleague of almost 40 years, this text covers the various types of impactions an orthodontist and surgeon will encounter, including maxillary central incisors, maxillary canines (both labially and palatally impacted), mandibular canines, premolars, and mandibular molars. Each chapter focuses on a specific impacted tooth and how it can be surgically uncovered and orthodontically moved. The book also presents a chapter on failed cases, explaining what went wrong and how to prevent such negative outcomes when treating similar cases. Ideal for any dental practitioner who treats impacted teeth, this comprehensive and up-to-date book is a fitting legacy for Dr Kokich, whose impact within the field of orthodontics will be felt for years to come.
