When searching on any specialty it is advisable to search not only the specialty or area of knowledge, in this case Orthodontics, but to also search the disease state, here Malocclusion , and the anatomic structure: Tooth. All of these are MeSH terms that you can "or" together in Medline to maximize relevant retrieval prior to restricting with other terms. Keep in mind that you can also "explode" these terms to include more specific terms (e.g. in Orthodontics a more specific term would be Space Maintenance; "exploding" on "Orthodontics" includes Space Maintenance references.
If you encounter difficulties when conducting a literature search please do not hesitate to contact the Wilson Dental Library resource personnel for assistance. We can be reached via e-mail or, during business hours, you may try to contact via the online chat box in the right column of this page.
