In addition, the overjet, overbite, maxillary and mandibular intercanine widths and intermolar widths, arch lengths, and Little's irregularity indexes were measured on the dental models (Figure 2) (22, 23).
The treatment objectives were to correct the inclination of incisors in both the arches, correct the midline deviation, achieve a normal occlusion with ideal overjet and overbite, reduce the protrusion of the lower lip, and improve the facial profile.
Previous studies that used lateral cephalometric radiographs that investigated the skeletal, dental, and soft-tissue effects of the Class II Twin-block appliance have reported reduced maxillomandibular discrepancy, decreased overjet, and advancement of the lower lip and chin point in response to mandibular growth stimulation15.
The DAI includes the evaluation of the following conditions: absent incisors, canines and premolars; crowding in incisor region; spacing in incisor region; diastema; largestupper anterior irregularity; largest lower anterior irregularity; anterior maxillary overjet; anterior mandibular overjet; vertical anterior open bite; and antero-posterior molar relation.
The included Overjet (OJ), which is the distance in millimeters (parallel to the occlusal plane) from the most labial aspect of the maxillary central incisor to the most labial aspect of the mandibular central incisor;9 overbite (OB), which is the percentage of the mandibular central incisors overlapped by the maxillary central incisors;9 mandibular inter-canine width, which is the distance in millimeters between cusp tips or estimated cusp tips in cases of wear facets if primary canines are present;9 canine length,
The presence of an open bite, for example, was identified as a risk indicator of speech capability, and mandibular overjet and the molar ratio were identified as risk factors for the expression of capacity and chewing, respectively.
Measures of central tendency and dispersion were calculated for the numerical variables, namely age of the patients, overbite (%) and overjet (mm).
Overbite de 5mm con incisivos inferiores tocando el paladar, curva de Spee invertida, overjet: 7mm, sin apinamiento y relacion molar clase II.
After clinical orthodontic examination (Figures 2-4), angle class II on the right and left side was diagnosed, overeruption (overjet 7.7 mm, overbite 12.7 mm) and facial dysmorphism (Figures 5 and 6): exophthalmos, hypertelorism, full cheeks, and prominent superciliary ridges were observed.
