Abstract

None of the investigated groups showed statistically significant gender differences for posterior vertical height measurements (P > 0.05). Asymmetry indices were similar, with no statistically significant differences found in any of the groups. However, gonial angle showed statistically significant differences (P < 0.05) in the UCLP group and condylar height (CH) in the BCLP patients (P < 0.001). Except for CH measurement in the BCLP group, CLP patients have symmetrical mandibles when compared with a normal occlusion sample.
