Superimposition of cephalometric images is the universally used method for demonstrating and evaluating growth and treatment outcomes in the dentofacial complex in individual patients. However, traditional procedures for cephalometric superimposition are based on the use of periosteally located landmarks or their dependant substitutes, which are unstable over time. This renders interpretation of pretreatment-to-posttreatment changes unreliable. The structural method of superimposition, developed and introduced by Arne BjÃ¶rk and based largely on longitudinal implant studies, is the only evidence-based method of superimposition, and it provides individualized, far-reaching insight into growth and treatment changes. Reliable measurement of local, actual changes in direction and amount is possible, allowing interpretation of the biologic events that took place. This book provides a critical, in-depth review of the history of cephalometric superimposition and the background and development of the structural method; demonstrates how to apply the structural method; and provides help and instruction for correct interpretation of the resulting superimpositions. Accurate cephalometric tracings and superimpositions represent the best way to demonstrate and evaluate changes resulting from dentofacial skeletal growth and treatment. This book will help readers to produce superimpositions with maximal accuracy, based on the best available scientific biologic evidence.

This textbook should be in the collection of every orthodontic resident and every practicing orthodontist. It is elegant in content and presentation. It reads well and illustrates the topic with logic and clarity. --Robert Little, - American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, October 2011
Despite being centered on a highly specialized topic, this book is very useful for those in the orthodontic field, as well as those with an interest in furthering their knowledge of cephalometrics and understanding facial growth. --F.N. Janjua-Sharif, - British Dental Journal, June 2012
