[The role of tympanometric examination in the orthodontic study of mouth breathers].

Abstract

The mouth breathing is a multidisciplinary problem; in fact, when the orthodontist finds a patient with altered dento-skeletal growth due to this abnormal mode of breathing, to establish a correct treatment planning, he needs to be supported [correction of comforted] by ear, nose and throat examinations. Among these, the tympanogram, because of its simple execution and of the interesting data obtained, has a very important role in the orthodontic approach of the oral breather.
