The relationship between lip-closing force and dental arch morphology in patient with Angle Class I malocclusion.

Dental arch morphology and tooth position are affected by lip-closing force (LCF). This study aimed to quantitatively evaluate the relationships between the horizontal or vertical balance of the LCF generated during maximum voluntary pursing-like movements and dental arch length (DAL) or width (DAW) or the lingual inclination of the upper or lower 1st… CONTINUE READING
