The Fundamentals of Cranial and Facial Growth

  • Harry IsraelIII

Abstract

Time plays its hand nowhere more expressively than in the human face. It performs this task so explicitly that we seldom misjudge any person’s age by more than a few years. The cherubic and large-headed infant gives way to the full-faced adolescent and gradually the years add the special embellishment of maturity. In that face is expressed health and well-being, aspirations and inspirations, and happiness or sorrow. To that face is drawn the glance of the stranger, the acquaintance, the relative, and the health professional; no one is excluded. In a sense, this makes diagnosticians of us all. To some this implies over-all health of the infant; to others, the status of the teeth; and to still others, the state of the mind. There is no limit to the list of interested parties because any person-to-person association initiates with a glance to the face.
