Croissance et morphogenèse du squelette cranio-facial Applications en orthopédie dento-faciale Les conceptions de J. Delaire Volume 73, issue 1, Mars 2002


The present report about J. Delaire's lecture summarizes his approach to :

- the nature and physiology of the membranous sutures,

- the «neural» and «adaptive» growth of the cranial base,

- the «central» and «cortical» development of the maxillary,

- the role of the premaxillary «skeletal entity» in the development of the anterior part of the face,

- the «bifocal» development of the mandible,

- the architectural balance of the craniofacial set (leading to the author's cephalometric analysis).
