The speaker will summarize the current knowledge in growth and development and the techniques in harnessing growth in Class II and Class III patients. Growth prediction can be realized in most patients with the appropriate diagnostic information, and growth modification can be a realistic objective in our treatment-planning process. Successful and unsuccessful cases treated with the Herbst and facemask appliances will be reviewed in an effort to find solutions for growth-modification challenges. For patients with abnormal growth patterns, the speaker will suggest practical ways to forecast excessive or deficient skeletal growth.
