To determine whether the mesiodistal width of the mandibular incisors is factor contributing to lower anterior crowding.

Materials and methods

Mandibular casts of 100 patients from the Orthodontics department, Saveetha dental college are to be taken and the mean collective mesiodistal width of the mandibular central incisors are calculated and compared with the littles irregular index value for that cast.


No correlation was found between the collective mesiodistal width and crowding of lower anterior teeth.


The mesiodistal width of lower anterior teeth does not contribute to crowding.
