It has been weighted according to the judgment of orthodontists and general dentists.6 The malocclusion is quantified based on five criteria of variable weightings: upper and lower anterior segment alignment (x1), left and right buccal occlusion (x1), overjet (x6), overbite (x2), and centerline (x4).
The total PAR score comprises of sum of scores of seven individual traits: alignment of upper and lower anterior segment, right and left buccal occlusion, overjet, overbite and centerline.
[12] The five components of PAR include assessment of upper and lower anterior segment crowding, buccal occlusion, overjet, overbite, and centreline.
The buccal occlusion should be moved minimally, given the nice original occlusal relationship.
The PAR Index assigns scores to seven individual traits: alignment of upper and lower anterior segment, right and left buccal occlusion, overjet, overbite and centre line.
