Abstract

Deep bite is multifactorial in nature with involvement of many local dental and skeletal factors. The aim of present cross sectional study was to find out the frequency of dental and skeletal factors involved in deep bite subjects visiting department of Orthodontics, Faisalabad Medical University and de’Montmorency College of dentistry. Orthodontic models and lateral cephalograms of 100 deep bite patients were included to find out the frequency of involved dental and skeletal factors. The mean age of the sample was 20.35 ± 3.45 years. Results showed that in dental factors, deepening of Von spee curve was the most frequent dental factor while decreased mandibular plane angle was the most frequent skeletal factor. It was concluded that deep curve of spee was the most frequent dental factor while decreased mandibular plane angle was the most frequent skeletal factor involved in deep bite subjects.
