IMPORTANT CEPHALOMETRIC PARAMETERS IN THE DENTO-FACIAL IMBALANCE ASSESSMENT FOR DENTO-MAXILLARY ABNORMALITIES
Over 90 % of communication is nonverbal; therefore, facial harmony is very important in human relationships and for being successful in life. The most crucial body language signal to influence our first impression is the smile. This is also the most recognized signal in every culture. Good eye contact, gesture and facial expressions are vital for our success. Our perception of physical beauty is based on how closely one's features reflect the “golden ratio” in their dimensions of the face, mouth, or teeth.
The modern methods of orthodontic treatment of dento-maxillary abnormalities refer to teeth alignment and to harmonious facial appearance. Thus, individual facial features analysis by cephalometric investigation of the soft tissues is important for dento-facial disharmony assessment and treatment.Key words: orthodontics, dento-facial balance, soft tissue parameters, golden section
