The lecture will explore the relationship between the dentoalveloar complex and facial esthetics. Specifically, orthdontic treatment decisions and their relationship with the integumental oro-facial complex will be discussed. A brief historical perspective will be presented and our responsibilities as orthodontists will be highlighted. Particular attention will be given to expansion of the dental arches and the subsequent effect on the esthetics of the facial complex.
