By comparison, the growth of the facial structure is functionally more intimately related to t h e growth of the body structure as a whole a n d therefore continues to a considerable extent during adolescence. The midfacial structure and nasal cavity grow a t a rate which is coniiiiensurate with the need for increased oxygen requirement, whereas the jaws develop a t a comparatively high rate to keep up with the increase i n iiietabolisiii which continues up to adult age.
