Abstract

Patients with mandibulofacial asymmetry will suffering from aesthetical, psychological, functional disturbance, and has a poor prognosis. The aim of the research was to get the prediction index through the study of risk factors for prevention and early detection. The study was conducted in several schools in Jakarta, on 234 Indonesian physical characteristics aged 8-30 years. Data were obtained from questionnaires and examinations (clinical, functional, photographic, and radiographic examinations). The main risk factor is One-sided Sleep Habit and Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Sign. It was detected that mandibulofacial asymmetry characterized a specific pattern of dental and skeletal morphology. Risk Factors Index and Model of Dentocraniofacial Morphological Pattern can be used to predict the occurrence of asymmetry mandibulofacial.
