Abstract: Introduction: The aim of this study is to evaluate the change in the curve of Spee in children from the age 8 14 years using a Vernier caliper and to determine the relationship between gender-wise and year-wise changes. Materials and methods: The longitudinal records of growth data available in the Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics, Sharad Pawar Dental College in the form of 5 sets of study models of 50 children (28 boys, 22 girls) from age 8 14 years, taken at an interval of 18 months, T0 (8 years of age), T1 (9 years), T2 (11 years), T3 (12 years) and T4 (14 years). The depth of curve of Spee was measured using Vernier Caliper and the measurement was made on the right and left side of the dental arch and the mean value of these two measurements were used as depth of curve of Spee. Results: Female patients showed significant differences when compared to male patients and also showed significant differences when T0 was compared to T2, T3 and T4. Conclusion: The curve of Spee was found to be increased in females.
