The mean values of inter first premolar width, inter first molar width and arch width
can be seen in Table 1.
This study was conducted to evaluate the validity of Pont's index estimating the dental arch width
depending on the sum of mesiodistal dimensions of maxillary incisors.
In a study, the relationship between dental arch width
and vertical facial morphology were determined.
112 The relationship of crowding to tooth size and arch width
is not very well documented in the Pakistani population.
12 Though nimkarn13 claimed that all these methods of predicting the arch widths
1 The Orthodontists award a considerable importance to the dental arch width
for diagnoses and treatment planning to address the dental esthetics and stability of the dentition.
Lower Interpremolar width was significantly narrow in class II/2 malocclusion and the maxillary and mandibular Intermolar arch width
was significantly larger in class II/2 malocclusion.
The purpose of this study was to compare dental arch widths
Class II division 1 malocclusion with normal Class I occlusion subjects.
