Dental and skeletal dimension in growing individuals with variations in lower facial height
Our aim in this case was to open the bite both with upper- and lower-incisor intrusions and still provide the patient with an aesthetic smile against her decreased lower facial height
In that study, facial height
increased more in males between 6-18 years, and the sex differences were more apparent after 12 years of age (el-Batouti et al.

(Na-Ba to Ba-PM) and lower face height (ANS-Xi to Xi-PM).
In this study, the management with modified activator seems to increase the facial height
1) without GHD were small submaxillary, short basis cranii length, normal anterior facial height
and increased lower anterior facial height
This could be explained by the fact that low tongue posture and elongation of lower anterior facial height
are apparent at three years of age but more commonly detected after age five16 as majority of our subjects were 5 years and younger.
In addition the anterior facial height
increased by 1.

The Le Forte surgical procedure (maxillary impaction) reduces facial height
