Disease relevance of Facial Asymmetry


High impact information on Facial Asymmetry


Chemical compound and disease context of Facial Asymmetry


Anatomical context of Facial Asymmetry

  • Statistical comparison with a control group showed characteristic dental anomalies in the facial asymmetry group, including asymmetry of the curve of Spee, molar inclination, dental arch form, lateral overjet, and slanting of the occlusal plane [13].
  • We present an 11-year-old patient with grade II hemifacial microsomia with facial asymmetry that was corrected with a combined simultaneous distraction of the maxilla and mandible using a single mandibular distraction device and an interdental splint [14].
