Abstract

Aim

The study was conducted to establish skeletal and dental parameters for Chhattisgarhi young adults, evaluation of variability between male and female Chhattisgarhi normal occlusion subjects and comparison of Cephalometric norms of Chhattisgarh population with Caucasians as well as other non- Caucasian groups.

Materials and methods

A Cephalometric study of 80 Chhattisgarhi young adults (40 males and 40 females) with acceptable profile and occlusion was carried out by means of Steiner's analysis.

Results

In comparison to the Caucasian samples, the Chhattisgarhi samples were more protrusive skeletally and dentally and exhibited a more horizontal growth pattern than the Caucasians. The females reported with an increased incisor procumbency, prominent chin and prognathic maxilla than their male counterparts.

Conclusion

The results of the study support the fact that a case of malocclusion cannot be treated to a template of norms which have been derived from mean values of a certain select group of subjects with excellent occlusion and harmonious facial proportions.

Clinical significance

A case of malocclusion needs to be treated based on the individual merits and demerits of that case and not based on template of norms derived from mean values of select subject groups with ideal occlusion and proportion.
