Abstract

Introduction: assessment of maturation stage is of prime importance in diagnosis and treatment planning. Our aim was to assess the time of pubertal growth spurt in a group of Egyptian females aged between 8 and 14 years old. Using modified middle phalanx of middle finger to find the correlation between MP3 maturation stages and mandibular second molar developmental stages.

Methods: Participants were 1740 randomly selected adolescent females from Egyptian primary and preparatory schools. Each participant’s middle phalanx of the middle finger was digitally radiographed to assess her MP3 stage. Seventy eight participants from the included subjects were chosen randomly and their mandibular second molar were also digitally radiographed, recorded and assessed using Demirjian., et al. method. Data were collected and statistically analyzed.

Results: There was direct correlation between MP3 stages and mandibular second molar calcification stages. The mean ± standard deviation values for age of pubertal growth spurt among a group of Egyptian adolescent females was 10.96 years ±1.06 years old. The mean pubertal growth spurt in the studied Egyptian females was earlier than males.

Conclusions: This study suggests that there is direct correlation between MP3 stages and mandibular second molar calcification stages.

Keywords: Pubertal Growth; Mp3; Mandibular Second Molar Calcification Stages
