Figure 1: Measurements using lateral cephalometry. 1: Hyoid mandibular Distance: Perpendicular distance between hyoid bone and mandibular plane. 2: Soft palate length: Posterior nasal spine to inferior angle of the mandible. 3: Mandibular length: The distance between condylion to gnathion. 4: Lower anterior facial height: The distance between anterior nasal spine and menton measured perpendicular to the line passing through anterior nasal spine and the posterior nasal spine. 5: Facial axis angle: The angle formed by the basion-nasion and the plane from foramen rotundum to gnathion
