To provide an improved data base for predicting the soft-tissue changes that accompany mandibular advancement surgery, short- and long-term serial cephalograms from the records of eighteen patients were analyzed. Hard- and soft-tissue landmarks were located on serial tracings and later were reduced to rectangular X-Y coordinates for computer-generated measurement data and statistical analyses. The interpretation of mean value, ratio, and regression equation data showed that the lower lip… CONTINUE READING
