Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the longitudinal growth changes in the incisor position, overjet, and overbite between 10 and 14 years of age. Serial cephalometric radiographs of 63 subjects (31 boys and 32 girls) were taken at the ages of 10, 11, 12, and 14. The effects of age and gender on the incisor positions, overjet, and overbite were investigated by means of variance analysis and least square difference (LSD) tests. The results show that the measurements of overbite, upper incisor-NA (mm), lower incisor-NB (mm), upper incisor-NA (angle), and the interincisal angle were affected by age. The results also show that the measurements of overbite, upper incisor-NA (mm), upper incisor-NA (angle) and upper incisor-SN (angle) were affected by gender.
