Diagnoses should be based on the face and not the teeth. Orthodontists sometimes get this backwards. If I straighten teeth and don’t consider the lips, nose, chin, and soft tissue first, I could negatively affect the entire face. I must view facial skeletal asymmetries as challenges and not road blocks to success. If I discount the middle of the top teeth relative to the nose and the center of the lip, I create facial imbalance beyond esthetic repair.
