A Vertical Cephalometric Analysis

Juan J. Alió Sanz, DDS, MS, PhD/Carmen Iglesias Conde, DDS, PhD

Pages: 397–404
PMID: 18092525

Correctly assessing open-bite malocclusions has remained problematic because clinicians have not had entirely reliable methods of determining the exact amount of skeletal and dental contributions to the problem. A new cephalometric technique, the vertical cephalometric analysis, offers orthodontists a system that precisely identifies the percentage of skeletal and dentoalveolar components that open-bite patients have. The vertical cephalometric analysis offers a discriminating diagnostic method for evaluating, diagnosing, and treatment planning for patients with open bite. This technique will allow clinicians to classify patients with accuracy, as well as to establish prognoses and select therapies. World J Orthod 2007;8:397–404.
