Aim: To make a research and compare the inter-canine distance of mandibular permanent canine in south indian population.
Objective: To compare the inter-canine distance of mandibular permanent canine.
Background: Teeth are the most indestructible part of the body, exhibit the least turnover of natural structure, are readily accessible for examination and do not need special dissection. The inter-canine distance measurement has a role in determining shape of maxillary arch and any change in this distance will cause pain.
Reason: Amongst all the teeth, the mandibular canines are found to exhibit greatest sexual dimorphism. In the present study, inter canine distance of the mandibular canines is to be measured.(M: F: 50:50) in the age group of 17-21 years.
