Vertical skeletal pattern

Vertical skeletal pattern

  • Different way to assess vertical skeletal pattern

    • lower anterior face height

    • Frankfort mandibular plane angle


Skeletal pattern vertical lafh

Skeletal pattern (Vertical : LAFH)


Lower anterior facial height lafh

Lower Anterior Facial Height (LAFH)

  • Is used to assess vertical dimension

  • Ratio of the LAFH to the total face height gives an indication if the LAFH is within normal limits

  • Facial proportion (LAFH %)

    = MxPl to Mex 100

    MxPl to Me + MxPl to N

    = 55% ± 2%


Frankfort mandibular plane angle fmpa

Frankfort mandibular plane angle (FMPA)

  • It measures the relationship between LAFH and posterior face height

  • Normal: mandibular and frankfort lines intersect in occipital region

  • Increased:anterior to occipital region

  • Reduced:posterior to occipital region
