Course Synopsis:
Historically, the “vertical dimension” has been the “forgotten stepchild” in orthodontics, possibly because it is so difficult to control during active mechano therapy. This presentation will deal with diagnostic and treatment considerations for patients from both extremes of the vertical dimension spectrum - the hyperdivergent pattern and the hypodivergent pattern. Many actual case reports will be shown during the presentation.
