Description

Cleft and Craniofacial Orthodontics

Comprehensive reference work for managing patients with orofacial clefts and complex craniofacial conditions from birth to skeletal maturity

Cleft and Craniofacial Orthodontics is a comprehensive and detailed reference work on the management of patients with orofacial clefts and complex craniofacial conditions. Covering patients ranging from birth to skeletal maturity, the book provides orthodontists, plastic and oral and maxillofacial surgeons, speech and language therapists, pediatric dentists, and prosthodontists with the information they need to evaluate and treat these conditions. Highlighting the multidisciplinary team approach, the book aids clinicians in developing a complete plan for their patients.

Each chapter is organized to reflect clinical practice, making it easy to apply the information to the treatment setting. Additionally, a companion website offers video clips of surgical and orthodontic procedures to further aid in reader comprehension and application. Sample topics covered within the work include:

  • Introduction to orofacial clefting: cleft lip and palate anatomy, cleft types and classification, epidemiology, and genetics of cleft lip and palate
  • Early management of orofacial clefting: prenatal diagnosis and counselling, feeding infants with clefts, and development of nasoalveolar molding therapy
  • Orthodontic treatment: interceptive orthodontics, management of anteroposterior and transverse discrepancies, preparation for alveolar bone grafting, and combined orthodontic-orthognathic management
  • Orthodontic and multidisciplinary management of twenty complex craniofacial conditions including craniofacial microsomia, Treacher-Collins syndrome, and syndromic craniosynostosis

Orthodontists, plastic surgeons, craniofacial surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, speech and language therapists, pediatric dentists, prosthodontists, and otolaryngologists can use this book to attain essential knowledge on managing patients with orofacial clefts and complex craniofacial conditions and understand how to apply that knowledge to practical patient settings.

Reviews

"Overall, the textbook is richly illustrated throughout, is logical in its presentation, and represents essential reading for those involved in the provision of cleft and craniofacial care. Indeed, while the latter chapters have an orthodontic focus, I think the value of the textbook would also represent an excellent reference text for the myriad of specialists involved in the complex care of this patient cohort."
--British Dental Journal volume 234, page 858 (2023), by Padhraig S. Fleming

"The first edition of Cleft and Craniofacial Orthodontics by Drs. Shetye and Gibson is a highly valuable resource for orthodontists, surgeons, and other professionals involved in treating patients with cleft and craniofacial conditions. The book stands out due to its expertly written chapters by the editors and the numerous contributors who have provided valuable insights.... Overall, Cleft and Craniofacial Orthodontics is a comprehensive and up-to-date book featuring plentiful information, high-quality illustrations, and a comprehensive bibliography."
--FACE (2023), by Alvaro A. Figueroa and Daniela Tanikawa

"This comprehensive textbook...fills a significant gap in the literature by focusing specifically on the orthodontic aspects of cleft and craniofacial care, an area often overshadowed by surgical perspectives in existing textbooks. It masterfully addresses the complex and multifaceted challenges presented by patients with orofacial clefts and craniofacial anomalies....Cleft and Craniofacial Orthodontics is a must-read for specialists in training to become (craniofacial) orthodontists and for orthodontists working in cleft teams. It is also valuable for professionals in other medical and dental disciplines, as it will provide them with a deeper understanding of the expertise of their orthodontic colleagues in the team."
--American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (2023), by Anne Marie Kuijpers-Jagtman

"This is as deep a dive into the current state of cleft and craniofacial orthodontics as might be imagined within the context of a single book....This book will be both a must-read and a must-own reference for anyone who might be involved in treating cleft or craniofacial patients."
--Journal of Clinical Orthodontics (2024), by Robert Kazmierski
