Abstract

Occlusal characteristics and spacing in primary teeth show different morphological features among different populations and races.

Aim: To assess and compare the occlusal characteristics and spacing in primary dentition among3–6-year-old children of Shimla district of Himachal Pradesh.

Materials and Methods: The study included 226 school going children. The primary molar relation, canine relation, overjet, and overbite were assessed using Foster and Hamilton criteria. Spacing conditions were registered according to Kisling and Krebs criteria.

Results: The data was analysed, and Chi square test was used to compare the measured variables. There was statistically significant difference (P value≤0.05) in the molar relation among male and females. Other’s characteristics were not found to be statistically significant.

Conclusion: The study population has fewer deviations from normal occlusion which indicates decreased tendency for malocclusion in permanent dentition. However, further longitudinal studies are necessary.

Keywords: Occlusal; overjet; overbite; molar-relation
