Abstract

Objective: Morphological changes in patients subjected to surgical treatment to correct occlusal discrepancies may lead to various functional changes. The aim of the present study was to evaluate changes in lip closing force after surgically assisted rapid maxillary expansion in skeletally mature patients.
