Abstract:

The understanding of soft tissues of the face in relation to the underlying dentoskeletal tissues is an essential guide in aesthetic treatment plan. The present study quantify the average parameters that define the soft tissue norms for young Igbo adults by means of linear and angular measurements. Standardized photographic records of 200 (100 males and 100 females) subjects taken in the Natural Head Position (NHP) were analyzed. Igbo male subjects had a mean percent ratio of 41.850.03 for middle face and 58.150.03 ratio for lower face, a nasofrontal angle of 130.188.84, a nasofacial angle of 39.924.720, a nasomental angle of 112.998.91 and a mentocervical angle of 91.112.25. In Igbo female subjects the mean values for middle face, lower face, nasofrontal angle, nasofacial angle, nasomental angle and mentocervical angle were 43.030.03, 56.970.03, 134.299.18, 38.065.22, 117.258.240 and 90.371.280, respectively. Statistical analysis (using the z score) showed significant gender differences for all parameters (p<0.05). The data presented in this study could be potentially useful in orthodontics and facial plastic surgery.
