In Partial fulfillment
of the requirements for the degree of
MASTER OF DENTAL SURGERY
In Speciality of
ORTHODONTICS AND DENTOFACIAL ORTHOPEDICS
Under the Guidance of
Dr. ARUNKUMAR G.Associate Professor Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics
College of Dental Sciences,
This Dissertation represents the assistance and efforts of many individuals, the contributions of whom I acknowledge and to whom I give my thanks.
I bow my head to the supreme force THE ALMIGHTY, driving me to my destinations, I thank them for having blessed me with his choicest blessings and opening the doors of opportunity to this adobe of knowledge and having blessed me with most loving family and teachers.
Words are inadequate to express my indebtedness and infinite respect for my Guru and Guide, DR ARUN KUMAR G. Associate Professor, Department of Orthodontics, College of Dental Sciences, Davangere. His unfailing willingness to render help and loving guidance, coupled with his rich knowledge and keen interest have been a constant source of inspiration and backbone of this study. Lucky are the few who are privileged to work under him and imbibe priceless insights into life. I find myself deeply indebted to him for teaching me the true values of life, imbibing in me his virtues of hard work, truthfulness and love towards fellow human beings.
It is with utmost sincerity that I thank my beloved Professor and Head, Dr.G Shivaprakash. A mere word of thanks is not sufficient to express his solid support, inspiration and unswerving guidance, during my post graduation and in the preparation of this dissertation. As his post graduate student, I have not only inculcated knowledge in the art and science of orthodontics but also other human qualities of life. His discipline, principles, scientific approach and logical explanation to this art of orthodontics shall always be my guiding star.
It is with utmost sincerity that I thank my beloved former Professor and Head, Dr.Anmol S.Kalha. A mere word of thanks is not sufficient to express his solid support, inspiration and unswerving guidance, during my post graduation and in the preparation of this dissertation. To be his post graduate student definitely gives me immense pleasure and honour.
The unflinching support and guidance I received from all the faculty members during my post-graduate course leaves me with an overwhelming sense of profound humbleness.
Let me at this juncture, pen down my deepest appreciation towards my teachers, Dr.(Mrs) Mala Ram Manohar, Professor, Dr. Naveen Shamnur, Associate Professor, Dr.Prabhuraj, Associate Professor, Dr.Umashankar, Reader, Dr. Shashi Kumar, Asst. Professor, Dr. Anvar Latif, Asst. Professor, College of Dental Sciences, Davangere for being my wheel of support and encouragement over the last three years. It is with sincerest gratitude that I thank Dr. Litesh Singla & Dr. Thomas, Assistant Professors, for giving valuable insights during the study and during my post graduation course.
At this juncture my deepest gratitude goes to Sri. Shamanur Shivashankarappa (Hon. Secretary), and Dr.V.V. Subba Reddy (Principal), for providing me the kind of atmosphere, fully equipped with the near latest technologies.
This acknowledgement would be incomplete if I fail to mention my Father Sri. CHANNAVEERAPPA, Mother Smt. GIRIJA, Brother in-laws, DR A.R HANUMANTHAPPA and A.G NATRAJ GOWDA, and Sisters Smt. SUDHA and Smt. REKHA and my Family Members. It is their love, prayers, many sacrifices and encouragement both morally and emotionally made it possible to me what I am today. It would be unfair on my part if I do not mention my batch mates, Dr.Aravind, Dr. Naveen, Dr. Murtuza, Dr. Ankush and Dr. Divya, without them this dissertation would have not been successful.
I would like to thank all my friends and especially juniors for their whole hearted support in completion of my post graduate course.
With out the help of Mr. Sangam, our esteemed biostatistician, my work would have gone unappreciated.
I also thank Mr.Surendra, Dyna Computers for organizing and neatly typing this manuscript and Aruna Printers, for their services rendered.
A special word of thanks to the non teaching staff, especially sister Jesline, Jagdish, Santosh and Neelappa, Geetha and Manjula for the help rendered whenever required from them.

Back ground & objectives : Orthodontists generally agree that non-extraction treatment is associated with downward and backward rotation of the mandible and an increase in the LAFH. They also agree that extraction line of treatment is associated with upward and forward rotation of the mandible and decrease in the LAFH. The intent of this cephalometric investigation was to examine the popular hypothesis, (wedge hypothesis) that the vertical dimension collapses after first bicuspid extraction. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the cephalometric overbite and vertical changes following first premolar extraction in high angle cases.
Methods : A total of 25 adult patients having high mandibular plane angle i.e. Gogn SN more than or equal to 32 degrees having class I molar and canine relation were included. Pre and post treatment lateral cephalograms were measured and compared to analyze the cephalometric changes.
Results : There was a significant increase in the MPA. There was no significant change in the pre and post treatment overbite, total anterior face height, lower anterior face height and posterior face height.
Interpretation & Conclusion : The study concluded that, There was no increase in the vertical facial dimension and overbite and no clinically significant increase in the mandibular plane angle. However it should be interpreted with caution, given the small sample size. The facial complex does increase in size with growth, but mandibular plane while moving inferiorly, remain essentially parallel to its pretreatment position, due to residual growth and treatment.
Key words: I premolar extraction; High angle; Wedge hypothesis; Lateral cephalograms; Adult.TABLE OF CONTENTS
