ORGAN IZATION” each according to it’s own kind. www.A fourth dimension is TIME. Growth is a dynamic process with a stable pattern of changes resulting in the increase in physical size and mass during it’s course of development. Thus.DIFFERENTIATION.indiandentalacademy.GROWTH     TODD: GROWTH IS INCREASING IN SIZE. PROFITT: GROWTH IS INCREASE IN SIZE OR NUMBER.com . growth is a three-fold process “SELFMULTIPLICATION.

 Moyers : “Development refers to all the naturally occurring unidirectional changes in the life of an individual from its existence as a single cell to its elaboration as a multifunctional unit terminating in death.com .indiandentalacademy. it encompasses the normal sequential events between fertilization and death” www.DEFINITIONS OF DEVELOPMENT:  Todd: “Development is progress towards maturity”. Thus.

GROWTH: PATTERN . VARIABILITY AND TIMING PATTERN VARIABILITY TIMING www.com .indiandentalacademy.

indiandentalacademy.  www.  There is higher level pattern of growth which refers to changes in these spatial proportions over time.com . The first important feature of growth corresponds to Pattern It reflects proportionality  The physical arrangement of the body at any one time is a pattern of spatially proportional parts.

It is usually assessed with peer group of children.indiandentalacademy. VARIABILITY : Variability in growth and development can be expressed quantitatively to categorize people as normal or abnormal. PREDICTABILITY: The proportional relationships can be specified mathematically and the difference between a growth pattern is the addition of a time dimension.Muscular and skeletal elements grow faster than the brain and CNS.com . www.NORMAL GROWTH PATTERN: Not all tissue systems of the body grow at the same rate.

www.indiandentalacademy.TIMING Its final major concept in physical growth & development   Variation in timing arises because the same event happens for different individuals at different TIME The biologic clocks of different individuals are set differently.com .

Diagnostic Procedures  Clinical Examinations :  The physical status or the build. height & weight are measured and accordingly the body types can be divided into Ectomorphic –tall and thin physique Endomorphic –average physique  Mesomorphic –short and obese physique  Extra oral Examination:   Size and shape of Head    Dolicocephalic-long and narrow head Mesocephalic-average head shape Brachycephalic-broad and short head shape www.com .indiandentalacademy.

 Convex profile – Skeletal class II malocclusion.indiandentalacademy.  Concave profile – Skeletal class III malocclusion.2.

FUNCATIONAL ANALYSIS
Postural rest position

In order to determine the postural rest position
the patients orofacial musculature must be
relaxed.
Muscle exercises like the tapping test can be
used to relax the mandible*

1.
2.

The moment of the mandible from the rest
position to full articulation is analysed in 3
planes of space ,this closing movement of the
mandible can be divided into 2 phases.
Free phase.
Articular phase*

indiandentalacademy. c. Rotation movement with posterior sliding component. a. www.com . For complete functional examination the following condition should be differentiated Pure rotation. b. Rotation movement with anterior sliding component.

indiandentalacademy. Firstly when the mandible moves from rest to occlusion without any deviation. www.    For example: A class II Malocclusion can manifest in 3 ways. It means that neuromuscular and morphologic relationship correspond to each other. Thirdly: Where there is a posterior gliding component. As there is no functional disturbances it is a true class II Malocclusion.com . Secondly when there is a anterior gliding component. It means that the mandible slides forward into habitual occlusion hence class II Mal relationship is actually more severe than what you see. The mandible glides backwards into a class II occlusion and it is not true class II malocclusion.

Vertical Relationship:

2. Pseudo deep over bite *

Transverse relationship:

be differentiated.
