Growth of the facial skeleton and prediction of the mandibular rotation has been subjected to a great number of studies in recent years. For prediction of the mandibular growth rotation, mandibular plane inclination in relation to the cranial base has been used frequently for many years. On the other hand, besides individual variability, statistical studies(More)
The purpose of this study was to search for the statistical associations between postural and morphologic variables of the head. Interpretation of the facial structure was made by using both intracranial and the extracranial reference lines. The sample comprised natural head posture (NHP) cephalograms of 106 dental students, aged 19 to 29 years. Results(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between craniofacial growth and skeletal maturation. The material consisted of the cephalometric and hand-wrist film pairs of 35 males and 43 females (78 subjects) whose development was followed for a period of 4 to 7 years. The subjects were grouped according to their skeletal maturation. Their(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate natural head posture (NHP) in different head types. Lateral cephalograms of 99 adults (Mean age, 21.8 years +/- SD, 2.2 yrs, range between 19 and 29 yrs) were examined. Head types were determined as Hyperbrachycephal, Brachycephal, Mesocephal or Dolichocephal according to the cephalic index. Analysis of variance and(More)
This study was undertaken to determine whether angles SNA and ANB genuinely represent both the degree of maxillary prognathism and the intermaxillary relationship in natural head position (NHP). Pearson's r correlation coefficients were used to assess the associations between these angles, and variables based on NHP and extracranial reference lines. A large(More)
