The aim of this study was to identify the transverse growth pattern of the craniofacial skeleton and dentition from 7 to 15 years of age. The database for this longitudinal study comprised the postero-anterior (PA) cephalograms and dental casts at 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15 years of age of 18 untreated Class I subjects with good occlusion from the Belfast Growth Study. Differential magnification of the PA cephalograms was corrected using the method of similar triangles. Most of the craniofacial widths… CONTINUE READING
