Objectives: To compare the condylar, ramal, condylar-plus-ramal mandibular asymmetry of patients with ectodermal dysplasia and healthy control subjects with using cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT).
Materials and methods: CBCT of 9 patients (4 girls, 5 boys) with ectodermal dysplasia and 10 healthy control subjects (5 girls and 5 boys) with normal occlusion were included to our study. Mandibular asymmetry index measurements (condylar, ramal, and condylar-plus-ramal) were made on the CBCT. The paired samples t-test was used to establish statistically significant differences between the sides for condylar, ramal and condylar-plus-ramal height measurements. Independent t test was used to determine possible statistically significant differences between the groups.
Results: There was no statistically significant difference between the right and left sides in condylar, ramal and condylar-plus-ramal height measurements of the patients with ectodermal dysplasia and normal occlusion sample. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups in asymmetry index measurements.
Conclusion: Patients with ectodermal dysplasia show similar condylar, ramal, condylar-plus-ramal measurements with healthy control subjects.
