Sassouni + A Case Study

In the first article4 in this series the planes and arcs used in the Sassouni + Archial Analysis were identified and described. In the second5 and third6 articles in this series the 14 points used in the Cephalometric Bottom Line1 were described. The Bottom Line allows the practitioner to diagnose an orthodontic case both dentally and skeletally and then to treatment plan the case.

In this article an orthodontic case will be presented. I will show how I use the individual points of the Sassouni + Bottom Line to diagnose and treatment plan the case. I routinely use other data alongside the Sassouni + Analysis when diagnosing an orthodontic case. These include the airway (Fig. 1), TMJ position3 (Figs. 2 and 3) and condition, analysis of the occlusal plane for tipping (Fig. 4) and canting (Fig. 5) and habits.
