Özet

Lateral cephalometric and hand-wrist radiographs of 10 patients (six girls and four boys) with an average chronological age of 10 years 5 months were obtained at the beginning of the observation period (T1, 9.5 months), beginning of MAD II application (T2), at the end of the treatment (T3), and approximately 4 years after the end of treatment (T4). Thirteen linear, 1 ratio, and 10 angular measurements were evaluated. Paired t-tests were used for statistical evaluation of differences that occurred between the time points.
