AKTIVITAS PADA SKELET KRANIOFASIAL SELAMA PERIODE PERTUMBUHAN

Magdalena Lesmana

Abstract


The human skull is a complicated structure made up from 20 constituent bones and it is thus not surprising that the pattern of growth is complicated. The fully grown skull is not simple a larger version of the infant form. The adult skull differs not only in size but also in shape, indicating that theremust be a process of differential growth. The differential growth process must be a different activity seen in the craniofacial skelet, during the growing period and it may be divided into four components. Knowledge of craniofacial growth provides a background to the understanding of the treatment planning process and to undertake suitable interceptive treatment, to hinder the stomatognathic function problems in the future.

Keywords
