John Mew, Mike Mew – New thinking on Facio-dental development
In the past orthodontists did not think faces could be changed by treatment, but with the advent of Facial Growth Guidance (Orthotropics) we are having to develop new parameters and define new objectives. In the past the upper jaw was thought to define the mid face but now we realise that the maxilla represents just the teeth and their supporting bone.
The other eight or more bones including the orbit and nose have been largely ignored but these are all part of the mid-face and are largely responsible for the overall shape and attractiveness of the individual.
I will discuss how to recognise and guide/correct the developing face.
