English abstract
In this article, the importance of vertical control to achieve condilar and aesthetic goals is presented. Most of the orthodontist do not know that Dr. Roth has been talking about maxillofacial orthopedics since the eighties. Unlike the other orthodontics, he always begin from a stable condilar position, never takes out the condyle from the fossae. Knowing that a fulcrum can displace the condyle, to achieve the condilar goal it is extremely important to diagnose and correct this interference. In addition, it is known that posterorotation in class II malocclusions worsen facial aesthetics, therefore is so important the vertical control to achieve the aesthetic goal. Teeth extractions are other important point to achieve the aesthetics and articular goals. Rev Esp Ortod 2005;35:315-36 Key words: Teeth extractions. Facial aesthetics. Orthopedics. Vertical control.

En este artículo, vamos a tratar sobre la importancia del control vertical para conseguir nuestro objetivo condilar y estético. La mayoría de los ortodoncistas no sabe que el Dr. Roth lleva hablando de ortopedia maxilofacial desde la década de los 80. Lo que le diferencia de los demás ortodoncistas es que él siempre parte desde una posición condilar estable, no saca el cóndilo de la fosa. Sabiendo que el fulcro distrae el cóndilo, es de suma importancia diagnosticar y corregir dicha interferencia para poder obtener nuestro objetivo articular. También sabemos que la postrotación en las clases II empeora la estética facial y, por eso, tiene tanta importancia el control vertical para obtener nuestro objetivo estético. Otro elemento vital es la importancia de las extracciones, para ayudarnos a obtener tanto nuestros objetivos estéticos como articulares. Palabras clave: Extracciones. Estética facial. Ortopedia. Control vertical.
