Multiple regression equations for prediction of the mesiodistal widths of the maxillary canines and premolars were developed for the right and left sides of the arches of males and females. The equations were developed from longitudinal data taken from ninety-two Caucasian children (forty-six boys and forty-six girls) who participated in the Iowa Growth Study. The multiple regression equations, when compared with three currently used methods of prediction, were the best predictors. The newly… CONTINUE READING
