(2) Nasomental angle: formed by the intersection of a line drawn between the nasion point (N), the pronasale point, and another line running from the point nasion (N) to the pogonion point (Pog).
Nasal volume increase, nose height increment, increase in nasolabial, nasofrontal, and nasomental angle, decrease in nose length, and nasofacial angle were observed.
The nasofacial angle, nasomental angle, and nasofrontal angle, although reported in the dental literature, are not widely used.
In patients with retrognathic profile and the Dental Class II div 1 Nasomental angle was found to be decreased 1192.28, Naso-frontal angle was found to be increased 141.706.06 and Naso-facial angle was found to be similar 36.463.05 to the values in patient with orthognathic profile.
In patients with retrognathic profile a decrease in nasomental angle, an increase in naso-frontal angle and comparable nasofacial angle were recorded.
