Abstract

Introduction: Skeletal class II results from anteroposterior disproportion in size or discrepancy in position of jaws rather than malposition of teeth relative to jaws. The aim of this study was to determine the patterns of skeletal class II.

Material and Methods: One hundred patients with skeletal class II were recruited in this study. The data was collected on specially designed proforma. Lateral cephalogram were traced for data analysis.

Results: Fifty-five female and forty-five males participated in this study. The age ranged from 9 to 34 years. Short mandible (50%) and vertically high angle (48%) were the common patterns.

Conclusions: The common patterns among the skeletal class II patients were with short mandible and high angle.
