Asymmetry of the Face in Orthodontic Patients… the latest article being passed around PRI!  Following a great weekend in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, covering Cervical-Cranio-Mandibular Restoration, Ron Hruska wanted to let you know about this fantastic article he came across:

“The results showed that 79.7% of subjects with facial asymmetry had a wider right hemiface and that 79.3% of the subjects with chin deviation showed left-sided laterality.  Laterality in the normal asymmetry of the face is consistenly found in Japenese orthodontic patients.  The right sided dominance of the face was independent of sex, age, and skeletal jaw relationships.  In this regard, the proportion of subjects with a wider right hemiface was larger at earlier ages than at later ages, while the proportion of subjects with a wider left hemiface was larger at later ages than earlier.” - Haraguchi S, Iguchi Y, and Takada K.
