Abstract

Craniofacial growth is a complex and beautiful phenomenon. Growth has been described in so many terms. Todd defines growth as “increase in size”. Meredith defines growth as the entire series of anatomic and physiologic changes taking place between the beginning of prenatal life and close of senility. Growth is quantitative, i.e., it is a measurable aspect of biologic life. Objective: The present study was designed to describe the craniofacial dimensions of rural residential free school children of Suttur at 10 years. Material and Methods: In order to study the changes in Cephalometric measurements 10 Males & 10 Females of 10 years old children were selected and Lateral Cephalograms were taken. On each Lateral Cephalogram, 21 skeletal cephalometric landmarks were identified. From the cephalometric landmarks and reference lines, 31 angular and linear measurements were analyzed, which were grouped as JSS Craniofacial analysis. Results & Discussion: Mean Sagittal Measurements of 10 years old, when compared between males and females, the females showed higher values than males for the variables SNA, ANB, A-Npog, A:ss-n-pg. Mean Basal Vertical measurements of 10 years old when compared between Males and females for values of PFH, PFH/AFH, Jaw relation, Maxillary Inclination, Jaw angle, Mandibular Inclination, SN-PoOr & ANS: Gn there was no statistically significant difference between Males and Females. Mean Mandibular length measurements Go-Co and Co-Gn of 10 years old when compared between males and females, the males had higher Mean values than the females for both the parameters. The Mean cranial base measurements of 10 years old when compared between Males and females, the males had higher Mean values than the females for S:Ba, PCB & ACB, but females had higher mean values than males for n-s-ar & n-s-ba. Conclusion: Craniofacial dimensions seen in this study is very useful data on Craniofacial changes of Rural Residential School children of Suttur, but needs to be done on a larger sample.
