Cephalometric Assessment of Iraqi Sample from Basrah City for Orthodontic and Surgical Treatment Planning
Keywords:Orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, treatment planning.
Objectives: The aims of the present study were to establish the cephalometric norms for Iraqi sample from
Basrah city and to study the sexual dimorphism.
Materials and Methods: Fifty dental students having normal occlusion were recruited and examined
clinically then digital true lateral cephalometric X-rays were taken and analyzed using Smile stream
software. Mean values and standard deviations were obtained and unpaired t-test was applied to assess the
Results: Most of the skeleto-dental measurements lie within the normal range with almost proclined
mandibular incisors and no significant gender differences.
Conclusions: Assessing the skeleto-dental relationships is far important to arrange accurate diagnosis and
