Resumen

Contemporary eating habits may cause malformations in children jaw, that are difficult to evaluate and treat clinically. In this work, a computational methodology for the diagnosis and the treatment of this pathology is proposed. It combines porous-fibrous material models, medical devices and computational models of patients with facial asymmetries from the perspective of neuro-occlusal rehabilitation.
