2017 Annual Session Conference

AS17B34B - The Influence of Orthodontic Treatment on Facial Balance

Apr 24, 2017 10:15am ‐ Apr 24, 2017 10:45am


The lecture will encompass the analysis of facial softtissues changes following orthodontic treatments. Soft tissue profile changes are assessed with respect to dental and skeletal structure changes in order to determine what kind of mutual connection there is between them and how that connection can be used to efficiently manage dental structures in orthodontic treatment not only for the purposes of achieving optimal occlusal relationships but also in the sense of achieving a balanced facial appearance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the most important skeletal and dental structures which influence soft tissue profile changes.
  • Analyze the intensity and direction of the mutual connections between dental and skeletal structure changes.
  • Illustrate dental and skeletal changes on the basis of obtained clinical practice results by comparing treated cases.
