The article presents research regarding observations of the growth of the mandible in pigs. Methods of measuring the anterior-posterior growth using a mandible with the third molar crypt in early stage development are detailed. Observation involving measurements of the occlusal plane are offered. An observation of the alveolar process refutes the idea that this portion of the jaw disappears following primary teeth eruption and reforms for the second set of teeth. The dynamic influence of the third molar as it absorbs the space necessary for expansion is analyzed.
