Growth lecture

  • The cranial base is composed mostly by bones formed by endochondral ossification.
  • Bands of cartilage are formed between centers of ossification called synchondrosis:
  • Spheno-occiptal synchondrosis
  • intersphenoid synchondrosis
  • spheno-ethmoidal synchondrosis
  • Mandibular symphysis is closed by age of 1 year.
  • Late mandibular growth:
  • can occur in the late teenage years or adulthood
  • most often seen in asians and males
  • can cause incisor crowding when there is a tight occlusion (overbite/overjet)
