BeschreibungThe orthodontic literature includes many articles on basic science and engineering research techniques, but clinicians are typically unfamiliar with the principles underlying these techniques and may also lack the background knowledge required for a full appreciation of their role. This book comprehensively reviews a wide array of the research methods most frequently encountered in the literature, encompassing the areas of materials science and clinical and biological research. The various methods and techniques are carefully described, and their indications and limitations are explained. All of the information is up to date, reflecting latest developments in the field. For practicing professionals, Research Methods in Orthodontics will be an ideal introduction to instrumental analysis and basic science research methods. It will also serve as an excellent reference guide for researchers. ¿

PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"The book is very well presented and illustrated and I feel the Editor and his team of valuable contributors are to be congratulated for successfully taking on this tremendous task and making a very worthwhile contribution to aiding orthodontists in their understanding of research in its most broadest context. In an emerging world of evidence-based practice, this book should prove to be a valuable addition to any orthodontist’s library and offers junior academics a very concise text reference." (Ama Johal, European Journal of Orthodontics, Vol. 35 (6), December, 2013)
