To compare the inter-canine distance of mandibular permanent canine.


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.


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.
