Abstract

Background: This study aimed to assess the effect of tooth width in malocclusion in relation to normal, crowding, and spacing dentition.
Materials and methods: The sample included dental casts of some dental students and orthodontic patients; their age was (18-25) years and having three groups normal, crowding, and spacing dentition groups. The sample was equally divided to three groups normal, crowding, and spacing dentition groups, each group contained 50 maxillary and 50 mandibular casts that were further subdivided by gender; all the stone casts were measured by highly sensitive digital vernier.
Results and Conclusions: Non-significant side difference was found in both dental arches in the three studied groups. Males had higher mesiodistal crown dimension than females in all three groups, with significant gender difference in crowding and normal dentition groups. The mesiodistal distance of the segment measurements (Total Anterior material; Total Posterior material and Total teeth material) were larger in crowded dentition then followed by normal and spaced dentition groups respectively in both gender. Total Anterior material in both arches had direct significant correlation with crowding malocclusion, while maxillary Total Anterior material had indirect significant correlation with spacing malocclusion.
