Facial asymmetry: A challenge to the dentist

Eduardo Rubio, Speaker at Dentistry Conferences
Argentinian Catholic University, Argentina
Title: Facial asymmetry: A challenge to the dentist


Facial asymmetry it is considered one of the most challenging pathology conditions to treat both for an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, as well as for a dentist. Bite correction could be particularly difficult to achieve because of three-dimensional bone discrepancy between the maxilla and the mandible. Furthermore, a simple dental restauration with an unstable bite, will trigger occlusal problems sooner or later. Condylar hyperplasia is the most common cause of facial asymmetry and could affect patients at any age. Hence, it is possible to correct the asymmetry at young ages with surgery before orthodontic treatment, or at the same time of the orthognathic surgery.

  • Apart from the functional result, you’ll get happy patients with a new face appearance.
