, superior facial indextotal facial index
relation of the length of the face to its maximal width between the zygomatic prominences; to get superior facial index, the length of the face is measured from the nasion to the alveolar point: (nasialveolar length × 100)/bizygomatic width; for total facial index, length is measured from the nasion to the mental tubercle: (nasimental length × 100)/bizygomatic width.

facial index

n.
The ratio of facial length to facial width multiplied by 100.

The correlation noted between the facial indexes and the angles of the face width (Zy.r-Tr-Zy.l), interlabial (Sn-Ls/Li-Sm) angles, and the zygomatic and the mandibular width (Go.r -Gn-Go.l) angles means that the shape of the face is much more related to these factors (Figures 3-5, Table 6).

Based on the mean value of the total facial index (Table I) the treated male entities with TFI=90.38 (variation 74.31-115.6) belonged to the leptoprosop facial type, and the females with TFI=90.27 (variation 77.6-109.01) belonged to hyperleptoprosop facial type.
Based on analysis of the results and discussion of this research, the following conclusions can be made: According to sex, the two treated groups show statistically significant differences in mean values of all measured cephalofacial variables, excepting the total facial index.
