The information about age-related changes in the dentition and about the peculiarities of anthropometric characteristics is of a particular interest because the majority of authors consider that the period of significant skull growth stoppage is an optimal time for complex orthodontic treatment, reconstructive and restorative interventions in the maxillofacial area.
The purpose of the present study was to detect the anthropometric characteristics of the dentition in patients aged 20-29 years with anomalies of single teeth position.
It has been determined that the most wide-spread malocclusions in people of both genders aged 20-29 years are anomalies of single teeth position in case of neutral molar interrelationship (57,9%), distal (34,7%) and deep (35,5%) occlusion.
According to the values of the facial indices among males and females aged 20-29 years the narrow face type was revealed in 28,1%, the medium face type – in 50,4%, and the wide face type – in 21,5% of cases. Convex face profile was detected in 34,7%, straight profile – in 45,5%, and concave profile – in 19,8% of patients.
When measuring teleroentgenograms of the skull in patients with anomalies of single teeth position and neutral occlusion mostly the neutral type of growth (70,3%), less frequently the horizontal (19,1%) and vertical (10,7%) types of growth were determined.
The ratio between the width and length of the upper сentral incisors was 0,8. The length of the first incisor ranged from 9 mm to 12 mm and averaged 10,6±0,1 mm in males and 9,5±0,02 mm in females.
Key words: anthropometric methods, dentoalveolar anomalies, facial index, anomalies of single teeth position.
