The Importance Of The Facial Profile In Orthodontic Diagnosis And Treatment Planning: A Patient Report
Siqueira, Danilo Furquim / Sousa, Marinês Vieira da Silva / Carvalho, Paulo Eduardo Guedes / Valle-Corotti, Karyna Martins do
Orthodontic treatment to improve not only tooth alignment but also facial esthetics is a given in modern society. This paper illustrates this assumption with a report of a patient with a Class I, maxillary retrusion, concave profile, and retrusion of the upper and lower lips. Maxillary expansion was followed by face mask therapy and orthodontic treatment, which significantly improved the soft tissue profile by projecting the upper lip.
