The recognition and elimination of dental compensation is essential in presurgical orthodontic treatment to achieve successful stabilization of the occlusion after surgery. However, the relationship between a transverse dental anomaly and skeletal asymmetry is not fully understood. To evaluate this relationship, frontal cephalometric and 3-dimensional dental model analyses were carried out on 44 adult Japanese Class III patients (mean age 21 years 11 months) who required surgical orthodontic… CONTINUE READING
