  • College of Dental Sciences and Hospital Rau, Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India
  • Govt. College of Dentistry, Dept. of Orthodontics, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India


The aim of the study was to derive prediction equations and probability tables for combined mesiodistal crown diameters of canines & premolars on one side of dental arch from that of four lower permanent incisors for Malwa males & females using simple linear regression. The study was performed using 200 dental models of Malwa subjects which were randomly selected out of 900 students of two local high schools, 100 males & 100 females with age range 13-19 yrs. Prediction table to estimate the combined mesiodistal width of unerupted permanent canines and first and second premolars is suggested.
