Perubahan profil wajah setelah perawatan ortodonti
This literature review aims to find out how orthodontic treatment can provide changes to the facial profile. The article is based on a literature review. Changes in the dentoskeletal and soft tissue profile around the mouth are found in orthodontic treatment. Correct positioning of the teeth over the basal bone can alter the profile, including the position of the upper and lower lips, na-solabial angle and labiomental angle. Through cephalometric radiography, hard and soft tissue structures can be analyzed si-multaneously, and tracing, then measuring, and evaluating. It was concluded that there is a relationship between orthodontic treatment and changes in the dentoskeletal and soft tissue profiles around the mouth.
