PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between variables that determine the position of the third molar (M3) and correlation between the pattern of facial growth and examined variables. MATERIALS AND METHODS Material for the study consisted of 130 panoramic radiographs and lateral radiographs of subjects' heads in whom(More)
The aims of this investigation were to determine whether stabilization of maximum voluntary bite force (MVBF) occurs between 15 and 18 years of age in subjects with a normal occlusion, and to assess the influence of gender, body mass index (BMI), morphological occlusion, and jaw function measured by the number of occlusal contacts, overjet, overbite,(More)
This study is concentrated on the lower face profile, the emphasis being given to the lips and chin area which have been analysed by various proportions. A sample consisted of 110 subjects (52 males and 58 females) with good soft tissue profile, dental class I and Caucasian type. All the records were taken in the natural head position (NHP) and all(More)

Currently, there is no information available regarding craniofacial morphology of Croatian patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The aim of the study was to determine the craniofacial characteristics of patients with OSA and to assess the association of cephalometric and anthropometric variables related to craniofacial morphology with the apnea(More)
The aim of this study was to determine tooth movements in the upper dental arch using a simulated original model during the time of activation of two active plates modifications, symmetrically and asymmetrically cut plates. The changes of the dental arch dimensions and precise evaluation of the distribution of the forces produced by appliance were analysed(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the accuracy of regression equation for prediction of the mesiodistal diameter (MDD) of the crowns of canines and premolars (C, P1, P2), and to determine whether an incisal indexs can serve as a reliable predictor. MDD and vestibulooral diameter (VOD) of the crowns of central and lateral incisors (I1, I2), C, both P1,(More)
