Abstract

Hard tissue palatal dimensions and shape in 29 boys and 32 girls (mean age 14 years) and 30 men and 35 women (mean age 20 years), all with a complete permanent dentition including the second molars, and free from respiratory problems, were analyzed. Palatal landmarks were digitized with a computerized 3D instrument, and their coordinates were used to derive a mathematical model of palatal form. Palatal shape (size-independent) was assessed by a four-order polynomial in the sagittal and frontal plane projections. Palatal dimensions in the frontal and sagittal planes were computed, and compared between ages and sexes by two-way factorial analyses of variance. The effect of age on palatal shape was different in the two sexes: while in females the curves in both the frontal and sagittal planes were practically superimposed, in males the youngest subjects had somewhat 'lower' curves than the oldest subjects. Sex had a significant (p
