(20,21) Two-dimensional analysis of a bilateral vertical jump revealed that adult dancers display greater ankle joint excursion in the sagittal plane compared to non-dancers (range of motion = 55[degrees] vs.
The earliest published method of recording and classifying malocclusion on Cast was Angle's classification in 1899,5 Itis based on the correctrelationship of first permanent molar as its position remains constant following eruption and it is based when mesiobuccal cusp of maxillary first molar occlude with the buccal grove of mandibular first molar.6 It is an easy method of assessing malocclusion on the study cast but it is the representative of only the dental classification in sagittal plane. Since the beginning of 1900s century the relationship between the maxilla and the mandible was considered a good tool in studying the growth pattern of skeletal discrepancies.7
