Dental arch dimensions in the mixed dentition: a study of Brazilian children from 9 to 12 years of age

Abstract: ObjectiveThis study evaluated dental arch dimensional changes of Brazilian children.Material and methodsDental casts were taken from 66 children (29 males; 37 females) with normal occlusion selected among 1,687 students from public and private schools aged 9, 10, 11 and 12 years, according to the following criteria: Class I canine and molar relationships; well-aligned upper and lower dental arches; mixed dentition; good facial symmetry; no previous orthodontic treatment. Dental arch dimensions were taken by on… Show more

“…2,3 In prosthodontics, a significant aspect of denture manufacture is closely related to differences in the dimensions of dental arches. 4 Various landmarks employed in measuring the dental arch have previously been described and discussed by several researchers. For example, the various dental arch widths of contralateral teeth have been measured in numerous ways, such as the arch across the permanent canines, premolars and first molars, or at the cusp tips, central fossae, contact points and the largest distance between buccal surfaces.…”

“…Upper and lower intercanine distance: Linear distance between the cusps of the contralateral canines. 2 Upper and lower intermolar distance: Linear distance between the main pits of the first right and left first molars. 2 Reliability of the method To evaluate the reliability of the method, measurements of the intercanine and intermolar distances of twenty study models that did not participate in the investigation, taken at two different times with a two weeks interval were used.…”

“…1 The changes that occur in the dental arches during mixed dentition are consequences of tooth movement and the growth of the supporting bone, as well due to genetic components. 2 Knowledge and proper evaluation of the factors affecting the shape and width of the dental arch is key to planning malocclusion treatment and achieving successful results regarding aesthetics, function and stability. 1,3,4 Nutritional status is likely to be also involved among these factors, since…”

“…The patient presented microdontia with oligodontia; teeth presented severe enamel defects as amelogenesis imperfecta that conduced to destructive decay lesions of deciduous teeth. In order to evaluate dental arch dimension, the Korkhaus' index was performed on patient's dental casts showing a considerable reduction of pre-maxilla diameter [6][7][8]. The patient underwent to X-rays ortopantomography and teleradiography exams in order to assess cephalometric evaluation.…”
