Correlation between inter inner canthal distance and occlusal vertical dimension among young adults of Dakshina Kannada population: An in vivo study

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Rary Rajan Panackal and Dr. Suhas Rao K
ABSTRACT:Objective methods of determining the vertical dimension of occlusion offer significant advantages because no radiographs or others special measuring devices are required. One of the objective measurement of vertical dimension of occlusion is twice the intercanthal distance. Hence this study was aimed to evaluate the correlation between the length of vertical dimension of occlusion and the length of twice the inter inner canthal distance among Dakshina Kannada population. Innercanthal and occlusal vertical dimension measurements were taken using digital vernier caliper from 60 subjects that fulfilled all criteria stated. The results were statistically analyzed. There was positive correlation between twice inner canthal distance and occlusal vertical dimension in Dakshina kannada population.
