For each subject, Sella Nasionmandible plane angle
(SN-MP) was measured.
Long face has excessive vertical facial growth and typically associated with anterior open bite and an increased maxillary/mandibular planes angle, sella-nasion/mandibular plane angle
and gonial angle (1).

The angles to be analyzed were: the nasolabial angle, formed by the nose columnela and the nasolabial projection; the interincisal angle conformed by the upper and lower incisors; the mentolabial groove depth, that gave the length of depth between the lower lip and the chin; and the mandibular plane angle
, which divide the sample, due to its degree of divergence with Frankfort's plane, into brachycephalic ([greater than or equal to] 25[degrees]), mesocephalic ([greater than or equal to] 30[degrees]) and dolichocephalic ([greater than or equal to] 35[degrees]) (Fig.
Bionator restrains the physiological counterclockwise growth rotation of palatal plane, and it produced a relative opening of mandibular plane angle
relative to Frankfort plane so that at the end, the overall increase in Lafh (Malta, Baccetti, Franchi, Faltin, & McNamara, 2010).

OSA subjects had deeper palatal vault, steeper mandibular plane angle
and less spaced upper and lower arches compared to control.
They also concluded that the activator did not significantly affect the mandibular plane angle
or the anterior facial height.
Generally, there are several groups of plane angle
measurement methods that could be successfully implemented (Giniotis 2005):
Namara) Mandibular body length Distance Go-Me (Bjork) Goniac angle Ar-Go-MP (Bjork) Upper goniac angle Ar-Go and N-Go (Bjork) Lower goniac angle N-Go and MP (Bjork) Maxillo-mandibular difference Mc Namara NBA angle NA and NB (Riedel) Angle of convexity NA and A pog (Downs) Palatal plane and mandibular PP and MP (Kim) plane angle
