Title: Correlation between Chronological Age, Dental Age and Skeletal Maturity in a sample of Sudanese Children
Author: Abuaffan, Amal H.; Hasan, Bushra M.
Abstract: Objective: This study aimed to correlate chronological and dental ages with skeletal maturity. Methods: A retrospective, descriptive study of the clinical files for 112 Sudanese patients, 7-16 years old. Skeletal maturity was assessed by using the cervical vertebral maturation stages. Dental age was determined by using the Demirjian method. Pearson’s coefficient was applied to measure the association between chronological and dental ages and Spearman rank correlation coefficient for the CS and dental calcification stages. Results: All correlations between cervical vertebral maturity and dental maturity stages were statistically significant (P < 0.05) in both genders. The mean chronologic age was 12.0533 ± 0.976 13.34 ± 1.66 years for female, male respectively. Conclusion: The first premolars in female and second premolar in male showed the highest relationship with CVM, which can apply as markers for skeletal maturity of a child whose looking for treatment.
