"Facial Growth, Dentition and Function" (Volume 5) available now
The world of orthodontics in an interactive tutorial format! This computer-based tutorial (CBT) program combines the contents of earlier "Dynamics or Orthodontics" modules (Volumes 2, 3, and 4) on a single DVD. Additionally, the tutorial package introduces new concepts related to the complex interactions between facial growth, tooth development, and function, making this program a one-stop, professional, state-of-the-art teaching and learning module. The tutorial allows users to repeatedly test their knowledge of particular subjects as many times as needed; both the current score as well as the maximum possible score are displayed after each test. In this way, users may test their knowledge and correct any deficits on an individualized basis. This new DVD-ROM contains 110 short video sequences and more than 460 high-quality illustrations and diagrams together with written and spoken text that can be reproduced in six different langages.
"Facial Orthopedics" (Volume 2b) is published now
Methods of influencing facial growth through facial orthopedics are demonstrated, including explanations of their modes of action and their long-term effects. Facial orthopedics has the potential to improve functional conditions, promote a more favorable jaw relationship, guide the development of the dentition, and improve the position of malaligned teeth. Multiple clinical examples, including several short video clips, demonstrate how and when to treat as well as the outcome of various facial-orthopedic procedures. All of the written and spoken text can be reproduced in six different languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese).
"Facial Growth" (Volume 2a) now available
Multimedia at its best: In this exciting new DVD-ROM, a dozen videos and more than 250 pictures are grouped in six chapters together with written and spoken text that can be reproduced in six different langages. Imagine a mixture of a presentation, a video and a book: that's what you get with this volume. You can navigate through the chapters and even the single assets by yourself or sit back and watch - it's at your choice. A seventh chapter contains various 3D animations of embryonic development which can be freely rotated and zoomed.
Total duration time: approx. 43 minutes
