An Evaluation of Skeletal and Dental Asymmetries in Angles Class II Subdivision Malocclusion in Central India Population
Abstract: Class II Subdivision malocclusions are unique in that they display characteristics of both Class I and Class II malocclusions within the same patient. The difference in occlusion between the right and left sides of the dentition presents a challenge for clinicians when attempting to diagnose and treatment plan these malocclusions. Although most of the previous research in this area faults the dentition for the asymmetry, this study aims to evaluate the symmetry/asymmetry of the skeletal components between the Class I side and the Class II side of Class II Subdivision malocclusions. A total of 100 patients were selected from the archival patient records of Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Sharad Pawar Dental College, Sawangi (Meghe), Wardha. They were divided into 3 groups, 50 class II subdivision, 50 class II and 50 class I. The results showed that there is a presence of skeletal asymmetry, while no dental asymmetry was found.
