SN-MP: Angle formed by the sella nasion line and mandibular plane.
The mandibular plane showed more vestibular inclinations, followed by neutral inclinations, and lingual inclinations in a lower proportion.
Regarding the lower permanent first molar, the treatment with modified Teuscher activator produced significant changes in the position of these teeth in relation to the mandibular plane.
Moreover a statistically significant correlation was found between mandibular plane and palatal plane18.
Significant differences between mesocephalic and brachycephalic patients were observed measuring the angle between the Frankfurt plane and the mandibular plane (P<0.
Go (Gonion): A bony point by bisecting the line of angle formed by the ramal plane and mandibular plane.
The ideal types of cases for such treatment are nonextraction Class II, Division 1 malocclusions, with procumbent maxillary incisors, lingually tipped mandibular incisors, a deep overbite, a flat to average mandibular plane inclination, and mandibular skeletal retrusion.
In contrast, patients with heavy facial musculature, such as football linemen and com- petition weight lifters, often show low mandibular planes, and deep dental overbites.
However, in the ceplalometric study of HVDRR patients, it was shown that the total mandiblulor length in these patients was not significantly changed; it also showed a reduction in the mandibular incisors' angle to the mandibular plane, and a reduced SNB angle [Al-Jundi et al.
Moreover, individuals with Class II division 1 dental-relationships with mandibular deficiency present an open mandibular plane, decreased SNB angle, increased ANB angle and positive AO-BO.
