Rapid prototyping is becoming a fast-growing and valuable technique for physical models in case of congenital anomalies. Manufacturing models are generally built from three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound, computed tomography, and fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan data. Physical prototype has demonstrated to be clinically of value in case of complex(More)

OBJECTIVE Facial-type-associated variations in diagnostic features have several implications in orthodontics. For example, in hyperdivergent craniofacial types, growth imbalances are compensated by displacement of the condyle. When diagnosis and treatment planning involves centric relation (CR), detailed knowledge of the condylar position is desirable. The(More)

However, due to extraordinary progress of the new technologies, remarkable opportunities to bring a better quality of life to the public in general arose. Making these opportunities available to those who endure handicap and disabilities is a core(More)
This work intended to investigate centric slide (CS) on different facial skeletal groups. With this aim in mind, three different groups hyperdivergent, hipodivergent and an intermediate one were studied and compared. The tests performed allowed to identify a statistically more significant vertical displacement in hyperdivergent group while the sagittal(More)
