The aim: to study the variability of morphometric parameters of the head of men of 21-35 years old, with orthognathic and direct occlusion and identify their differences. Material and Methods. Cephalometry performed in 93 men aged 21 to 35 years from the Saratov region. Distribution groups conducted for the type of physiological occlusion: orthognathic (n=61) and direct (n=32). To determine the parameters used cephalometric anthropometric standard set of tools. On the head cephalometric points were determined between which measured morphometric parameters of the cranial and facial departments, as well as parameters of soft tissue structures. Results. In men with physiological occlusion parameters having statistically significant differences in orthognathic and direct bite were identified: head length, morphological face height, the height of nasal and maxillary division, mandibular body height, width of the face, the angular width of the face. Average values of these parameters are more prevalent in men who have a direct bite.
Conclusion. The data obtained should be considered during orthodontic and orthopaedic treatment, with lectures and practical training in the departments and faculties of the human anatomy with the dental profile.
