The evaluated malocclusions assessed were posterior cross bite, anterior cross-bite, anterior open bite, overbite and overjet; angle classification also being evaluated.
Overjet was measured as the greatest distance between the incisal edges of the maxillary and mandibular primary incisors in the occlusal plane using a millimeter gauge and recorded as ideal, if a positive overjet was less than or equal to 2 mm; increased, if it was greater than 2 mm; and reversed, if there was anterior cross-bite and edge-to-edge relationship was also assessed [9].
