Abstract

Many model analyses methods for measuring tooth size discrepancies, even though they are not always used have been carried out by many authors and formulated for the predetermination of arch size. On the basis of their findings many studies were carried out to find out its reliability, few researchers agreed to the statement made and few pointed out their lack of agreement. Bolton's method of diagnosing tooth-size discrepancy has been widely used in scientific studies since its publication. Cast analysis is required for all potential orthodontic patients, whether problems are moderate or severe. It is done to evaluate symmetry, alignment (crowding, spacing) and tooth size analysis.
