ABSTRACT

The physiologic functions of the nasal cavities are as follows: "They elevate the temperature of the inhaled air, give it moisture, and purify it by arresting all particles of dust and other substances which it may contain;" they act as resonance cavities for the voice and are also the seat of the sense of smell.

A professional experience of more than twenty-five years, has taught me that any inflammatory lesions-found in children between the ages of 4 and 12 years-which obstruct these natural conditions, are in the majority of cases, the chief agents in the causation of malformed jaws, and the consequent abnormal alignment of the teeth.
