Read to the Section of Dental and Oral Surgery of the American Med. Association, May, 1884.
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen.--The plaster casts I exhibit to you are models of a case that I have recently had under treatment. It had excited considerable interest and discussion among some of the surgeons and dentists of the patient's native State, but no definite treatment had been decided upon.
On taking up his residence in Chicago, the dentists at his home in New Hampshire advised that he put himself into my hands for such treatment as might be thought best, and the case is, I think, of sufficient interest to warrant me in presenting it to the Section.
Mr. F. L. S—, aged 25 years, consulted me June 22, 1884, for a malformed condition of both maxillary arches. The young gentleman is a graduate of Harvard College, and a civil engineer by profession.
