were taken at the beginning of the treatment, at the end of expansion and after 3 months of retention period.
Tallgren in 1976 , who analyzed variables defining craniofacial morphology and defining head posture, on the cephalometric radiographs
of 120 subject between the ages of 20 and 30 years.

The genial tubercle and genioglossus muscle can be identified by finger palpation in the floor of the mouth and with the aid of the lateral cephalometric radiograph
Quality of Lateral Cephalometric radiograph

revealed a hypoplastic maxilla.
While the initial panoramic radiograph (Fig 2) revealed normal findings with full complement of permanent teeth, the initial cephalometric radiograph
(Fig 3) showed convex profile with hyperdivergent and retrognathic mandible as confirmed by the cephalometric analysis (Table 1).
