This book presents the neurobiology of orthodontics according to the most recently acquired knowledge on the interaction of the brain activity with the senses. In particular, it highlights the ability of orofacial sensory input to modulate and change the brain activity underlying functions of the stomatognathic system, such as chewing, biting, speech, and occlusal feedback. The approach adopted thereby represents a significant departure from traditional orthodontics, in which malocclusions of the teeth have been interpreted as deriving from DNA coding errors. The described new conceptualization of the etiology and diagnosis of malocclusions has profound implications for orthodontic therapy, as is clearly explained. Orthodontic therapy in turn has significant effects on the brain, which are documented in a chapter devoted to neuroimaging methods. By opening up new and creative pathways in the world of orthodontics, this book will hopefully both educate and excite the practitioner. It is recommended reading for all orthodontists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Aus den Rezensionen:

"Beim ersten Durchblattern dieses Buches ist man uberrascht ... ist anders als die meisten kieferorthopadischen Fachbucher. ... Die Aussagen sind akribisch mit der fachspezifischen ... Literatur belegt. ...Es wird ein sehr tief fundiertes neurophysiologisches Verstandnis fur die Kieferorthopadie geschaffen, das auch all diejenigen interessieren durfte, die sich nicht mit Kieferorthopadie, sondern mit den normalen physiologischen Funktionen in der Mundhoehle und im Gesicht beschaftigen. ... eine Fulle von Fakten wird im Detail beschrieben, man liest jede einzelne Seite langsam und grundlich ..." (in: Zahnmedizin up2date, December/2010, Vol. 4, Issue 6, S. 549)
