The aim of this study was to determine the constancy and the extent of the dentoalveolar adaptation in subjects with disharmonious vertical jaw base relationships. Lateral head films in centric occlusion of 66 untreated adults were analysed. The subjects were divided in three facial type groups on the basis of the mandibular base angle (ML/NSL): hypodivergent (n = 23), normodivergent (n = 18), and hyperdivergent (n = 25). The relationships between maxillary and mandibular anterior and posterior… CONTINUE READING
