2. A scientific study of the measurements of the head with relation to specific reference points; used for evaluation of facial growth and development, including soft tissue profile.

The linear distance of "L1-APo" is one of the most important factors influencing the position of lower incisors and it is with the help of the cephalometrics that we can evaluate this measurement.
