a bone forming part of the nasal septum; see Appendix 2-3. adj., adj vo´merine.

vomer (bone)

C) and dentoalveolar impaction plane (A-C) parameters increased inversely (14,17[+ or -]3,00), (15,84[+ or -]4,72) when the vomer bone backward displaced and impacted in the sever group malocclusion (Type C).(26)
Thus, a new finding of this study emphasized a strong correlation of the anterior midfacial pattern with vomer bone anterior parameters under the biodynamic effect of the skeletal dimensional changes of the vomer bone.
Due to the vomer bone morphology of the "Y" shape, the anterior proximal segments has a close relation to the septo-vomeral traction that narrower anterior segment of the medial directional displacement of the maxilla line occurs.
On the other hand, the interesting interrelations of the vomer bone with midfacial architecture using 3D CBCT analysis not reveal accurately previously.
That vomer bone components analysis were reported with a meaningful limitation of this study retrospectively and less sample account.
According to the findings of this study, the dimensional change and 3D pattern variations of vomer bone were shown to be highly significant and correlated with a meaningful displacement to the skeletal dentofacial discrepancy by using 3D CBCT image analysis.
