Part 3 | Sassouni + Archial Analysis

As developed by Dr. Viken Sassouni and later modified by Dr. Richard Beistle, the Sassouni Plus Cephalometric Analysis is an amalgamation of contemporary cephalometric applications. In a series of articles, the author explains how the analysis relates anatomical structures to each other within the framework of the individual patient.

In the first article of this series, the planes and arcs used in the Sassouni Archial Analysis1 were located and described. The cephalometric bottom line (Fig. 1) consists of 14 points that aid in the diagnosis, both dentally and skeletally, and treatment planning of an orthodontic case.

In the second article of this series, points 1, 2, 14, 5, 6, 12, 11, 9 and 3 were described.

In this third installment, points 13, 7, 8, 4 and 10 will be described in this order. It is very important that the reader of this article study the figures and the associated text that accompanies each figure to more fully understand each bottom line point.
