the lateral cephalometic radiograph and identification of relevant

anatomic landmarks. Using these landmarks, today we can

construct reference planes or lines to represent cranio-facial

structures, which can then be analyzed. Analysis involves making

select measurements on the cephalometric tracing and comparing

them with normative values to identify deviations from normal

This helps the practitioner identify where problems exist . There are

various sets of normal values for different ethnic, age and gender

groups. When analyzing a cephalometric film, its important to

understand which patient population the subject belongs to. For

each value, which is one or more standard deviations outside of the

normal range, an interpretation can be made.

As mentioned before, we can examine certain relationships with the

lateral cephalometric film. These include:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

The relationship of the mandible to the cranial base.

The relationship of the maxilla to the mandible.

The relationship of the maxillary dentition to the maxilla.

The relationship of the mandibular dentition to the mandible.

The relationship of the maxillary dentition to the mandibular

dentition.

cephalometric tracings and for each of which you will analyze and

write-up a cephalometric summary.

REFERENCE PLANES

In order to examine these relationships, we will first establish certain reference planes on the

tracing.

a. Frankfort Horizontal (FH) the line constructed form porion (Po) to orbitale (Or)

which represents the basic horizontal plane of the head.

b. Sella-Nasion (SN) the line constructed from sella to nasion which represents the

anteroposterior extent of the anterior cranial base.

c. Y-axis(S-Gn) the line constructed through sella and gnathion

d. Mandibular plane(MP) constructed as a line from gonion to gnathion.

e. Facial Plane (N-Pog) the line constructed through nasion and pogonion.

Note that the points being compared by this angle are sella and nasion (cranial base

points) as well as A point (maxillary point).

b. Construction: the angle between a line drawn from S to N and a line drawn from N to

2) 80-84 - maxilla is normally positioned relative to the cranial base.

3) >84 - maxilla is prognathic relative to the cranial base.

a. Purpose: establishes the horizontal location of the maxilla relative to the cranial base.

base), and B point (mandible).

B. Alternatively: ANB = SNA SNB. Therefore, any negative ANB, by definition, will

have the mandible ahead of the maxilla in a class III relationship.
