Abstract

Background: The aim was to evaluate the type of malocclusion in primary dentition to give the parents information about their child future teeth in order to try to minimize the malocclusion in permanent dentition.
Materials and methods: An oral health survey was conducted among 200 kindergarten children aged 4-5 years from randomly selected kindergarten in the Zayona part of Baghdad city. The numbers of females were 100 and the numbers of males were 100.
Results: Highest percentage of children showed mesial terminal end( 60.5%) followed by flat terminal end( 29%) and the smallest percentage for distal terminal end( 10.5%),high percentages of children showed Cl I Canine relation and Cl I over jet relation followed by ClI and small percentage showed ClII canine and over jet relation.
Conclusion: Most children had mesial terminal end so will guide the permanent first molars to Cl I molar relation, and most children had Cl I canine and over jet relation so we will expect the future permanent teeth will be within normal over jet and canine relation.
