Abstract
Longitudinal serial cephalometric films in the every second year from fifty girls were used for the analysis of growth pattern of maxillary alveolar bone (MAE). Six parameters regarding MAB height were measured and were compared with stature and chronological age. Descriptive analysis. correlation coefficient test and linear regression analysis were done for the statistical analyses. 1. The height of MAE increased until 14 years although growth velocity was gradually decreased. which was different with stature growth pattern. 2. The correlation coefficients between chronological age and MAB height were high and had no statistical differences with those of stature and MAB height. In addition. the correlation coefficients between chronological age groups within each parameter of MAB were very high. 3. The growth amount of MAB could be predicted using linear regression analysis on the basis of chronological age data. The growth pattern between MAE and statue was quite different because of the growth pattern difference between skeletal and neuronal system. Therefore. growth pattern of Korean MAB must be considered in dental treatment of youth. Also. close relationship between chronological age and MAB height would be useful when clinicians want to predict growth amount of MAE for the dental implant treatment.
