Aim: The aim of the present study was to establish hard and soft tissue cephalometric norms for orthognathic surgery (COGS) in Andhra Pradesh population.
Materials and Methods: The digital lateral cephalogram of 100 subjects was taken of which 50 were male and 50 females in Andhra Pradesh. Population within the age range of 18 - 25 years. The cephalograms were traced, analyzed and Burstone’s analysis was used for hard tissue interpretation and Legan and Burstone analysis for soft tissue interpretation respectively. The standard deviation and mean deviation were calculated to compare between the groups.
Results: The anterior cranial base length; the posterior maxillary height; the antero-posterior maxillary length; the ramal length, posterior facial height to anterior facial height ratio, the inclination of maxillary incisor, lower lip prominence and the depth of the mento-labial sulcus was significantly more in the Andhra Pradesh population than the Caucasian group.
Conclusion: The results obtained of the Andhra Pradesh population can be used as cephalometric norms for orthognathic surgery.
