Development of the Human Dentition

For almost three decades, Prof van der Linden's classic text, Development of the Dentition, has been the international standard reference in its field. Now, he has updated those concepts in a new edition. Starting with tooth formation and the development of the deciduous dentition, the author systematically takes the reader through the transition to the permanent dentition and through the aging of the dentition. Emphasis is placed on the relationships among the development of the dentition, the growth of the face, and funcational factors. Subsequently, the development of orthodontic malocclusions is presented, followed by the effects of untimely loss of deciduous teeth.
