Comprehensive and accessible resource that covers all crucial aspects of dentofacial and occlusal asymmetries

This book covers all crucial aspects of asymmetries encountered in the stomatognathic region regarding diagnosis, treatment planning, management and prognosis. Divided into three core sections, the first part focuses on the etiology of asymmetry and whether it is congenital or acquired through disease or trauma. The second and third sections go on to discuss localization and management, providing information on topics such as interception, correction and camouflage. Specific sample topics covered in the book include:

  • Treatment approaches: interceptive, tooth movements, goal-oriented biomechanics and jaw repositioning
  • Treatment principles: dentofacial orthopedics, camouflage and orthodontic-surgical treatment
  • Localization and problem list: medical and dental history, clinical examination, dental cast analysis and radiographic/imaging assessment
  • Medical, social and psychological aspects: growth disorders and helping children and their families with facial differences
