Abstract

The objective of orthodontic study of facial growth is to understand how growth can affect the dental occlusion and facial profile. The purpose of this report is 1) to demonstrate and explain jaw rotations that occur, 2) indentify how variations in these rotations differentially affect the dental occlusion and profile, 3) show how vertical growth of the ramus is capable of producing anteroposterior dental and profile changes, and 4) demonstrate a method of analyzing jaw growth and its effect on dental occlusions for patients.
