Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the indications of bionator in Class II division 1 malocclusion. The 48 subjects were classified into good result group(groupl) and poor result group(group2) in reference to posttreatment molar relation, posttreatment overbite and overjet, posttreatment profile, and relapse. Pretreatment lateral cephalograms were calculated and evaluated by t-test and stepwise discrminant analysis. The results were as follows; 1. In jaw bone relationship, ANB, facial convexity angle, AB to facial plane angle were significantly different between two treatment groups. In denture pattern, Ll to facial plane, Ll to A-Pog, FMIA, and Ul to facial plane were significantly different and in soft tissue profile, protuberance of lower lip and upper lip were significantly different between two treatment groups. 2. The results in according to discriminant analysis stated that Ll to facial plane, ANB, FMIA and protuberance of lower lip help prediction of treatment result of bionator. 3. 3 major influential variables were obtained by stepwise discriminant analysis - Ll to facial plane, articular angle and ANB difference. And Fisher discriminant function was made by these three major variables.
