Orofacial analysis has been used by dentists for many years. The process involves applying mathematical rules, geometric principles, and straight lines to create either parallel or perpendicular references based on the true horizon and/or natural head position. These reference lines guide treatment planning and smile design for restorative treatments to achieve harmony between the new smile and the face. The goal is to obtain harmony and not symmetry. Faces are asymmetrical entities and because of that cannot be analyzed using purely straight lines. In this article, a more natural, organic, and dynamic process of evaluation is presented to minimize errors and generate harmoniously balanced smiles instead of perfect, mathematical smiles.
