THE RELIABILITY OF BETA ANGLE IN ASSESSING CLASS II SKELETAL BASE IN MALABAR POPULATION

Dr. Sreehari S, Dr. M. Jayarama, Dr. Latheef V P

Abstract


The study aims to assess the ability of Beta angle, a cephlometric angle used to measure anterio - posterior skeletal base
relationship to identify class II skeletal base.63 pre-treatment cephalograms were selected in to Class II group based on
angle ANB, from 123 lateral cephalograms. The Beta angle values obtained were analyzed. The angle Beta is sensitive and specic in
differentiating a Class II from a Class I
