Myths and Facts in Fixed Class II Therapy. In: Baxmann M. Hrsg., Fixed Equipment Class II Therapy. Proven methods and latest developments. Quintessenz Verlag, Berlin 2012, chapter 10, pp. 68-76

Here you can find my chapter for a textbook dealing with modern orthodontic treatment concepts, which was published by one of the most recommended scientific publishing houses in Germany. The term of myth is related to old beliefs in orthodontics that it was possible to control skeletal and facial growth by means of so-called “functional” appliances. In this chapter is shown that our therapeutic capabilities are by far more modest. Finally evidence-based medicine should determine what we do for our patients instead of old beliefs and traditions. This chapter is conceived to push the frontiers forward in that direction.
