The results of this study revealed that patients with increased overjet of more than 3mm showed a more sever and extensive pattern of tooth fracture, manifested by increased number of fractured teeth (fracture of both mesial incisal angles) or fracture of the distal edge of the central incisor as seen in fracture patterns 2 and FP4-7 (Table 1), which came in agreement with a liter- ature review of cohort studies by Gelnor U 2009 which states that increased overjet has twice the tendency for traumatic dental injuries (TDI) than their normal counterparts.
