Careful diagnosis of facial asymmetries identify positional and shape asymmetries among the different components of the face. The goal of the such precise diagnosis is to improve treatment outcomes with the proper correction of positional deviation of the mandible in roll and yaw, prior to assessments of left and right differences. 3D images provide insight into different approaches for orthopedic correction and surgical correction of asymmetries.
Evaluate 3D components of facial asymmetry.
Identify asymmetric changes.
Recognize asymmetry due to condylar resorption or condylar hyperplasia.
