Abstract

This study identifies arch symmetry and describes arch form variations in normal primary maxillary dental casts. Sixty-two percent of casts had asymmetrical arches, and 38% had symmetrical arches. Six types of arch form were identified according to the ratio of arch width to length. There were more long types than short types. The rounded and short types tended to have a more-symmetrical arch than did the long type.
