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.
