  • DEFINITIONS KROEBER – Anthropology is the science of groups of men and their behavior and production. JACOBS & STERN – Anthropology is the scientific study of the physical, social, and cultural development and behavior of human beings since their appearance on the earth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Classification of anthropology  PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY  CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY Physical anthropology is concerned with man as a physical organism in ‘time’ & ‘space’ Study of the man through evolutionary processes  study of human populations BEALS & HOIJER – The study of processes where by man developed from his non human ancestors and the continuing process of change still slowly altering his bodily form.  www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY HUMAN GENETICS E.C.COLIN – Genetics is the branch of biology which deals with the laws and principles of heredity and variation as observed in plants, in animals and in human. HUMAN PALEONTOLOGY Webster’s New International Dictionary – Human paleontology is the science that deals with life of the past geographical periods. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • Different aspects of anthropology ( applied anthropology )      Dental development Dental pathology Dental morphology Forensic odontology odontometry www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • DENTAL DEVELOPMENT Tooth eruption standards which are relatively independent of general body growth and skeletal maturation are of great significance in the diagnosis & treatment planning of children with growth disturbances protein-calorie malnutrition ( PCM ) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PATHOLOGY Dental caries – it is a pathologic condition of the teeth resulting in the decalcification of the dentin, enamel and the disintegration of the remaining organic material often leading to the loss of teeth. Caries susceptibility expresses the inherent or acquired proneness to caries Low incidence of caries in the prehistoric as also in the living tribal communities – coarse & fibrous food products www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • DENTAL MORPHOLOGY Teeth are best preserved & most easily accessible anatomical system of the body. pioneering studies – Hrdlicka, Dahlberg, Campbell, Hellmen, Krogman, Moorrees etc. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 1.Supernumerary teeth or hyperdontia - causes dental disturbances by interfering with normal eruption - either peg shaped or have large crown - Higher frequency in the maxilla -Campbell conducted a study on the skulls and living Australian aborigines.(1.8% ) www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • Problems with measuring tools     Standard measurements are not used If they are used improperly examiner should be familiar with the areas Accuracy varies with instruments sliding calipers – accurate sliding calipers – up to 3mm error tape –shortens the distance when pressed & should be tightened to eliminate the effect of the hair fabric tape follows the contours of the face www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Improper measuring technique  POSITION OF THE HEAD – improper measurements ( especially projective measurements )  Head tends to return to the rest position during examination – must be checked before measurement 50 to 100 of error in inclination  In patients with asymmetric FHs, the difference between two horizontals must be assessed Farkas – left FH is closer to the rest position  www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • FACIAL MID LINE – border between right & left halves Errors can be made in judging the facial asymmetry Nasion is the most stable point The heights will be changed with expressions on the face ( crying, smiling ) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Anthroposcopy  Errors result from 1. Incorrect positioning of the patient’s head Wrong angle of view of the examiner’s eyes Poor lighting Poor esthetic assessment & talent 2. 3. 4. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Head Visual judgment of the height of the fore head depends on the 1. Position of the head during inspection 2. Inclination of the fore head 3. Position of the ears Face  Lower face height would appear small in the presence of a receding mandible www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Lips & mouth Frontal view – size of the upper lip depends on the naso-labial angle & the position of the skin surface Curved nasolabial angle & protruding skin – short upper lip Vertical upper lip & obtuse angle – longer lip www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Nose www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Applied anthropometry www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Anthropometry in cleft lip & palate patients      Combined orthodontic & surgical treatment Poor esthetics and nasal deformity ( displacement of the soft tissue elements ) Esthetics – no uniform definition Goals - Balance & harmony Accepted standards www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •     Common technique – visual assessment based on the rating scale - subjective & unreliable Radiographic cephalometry Photographs Physical anthropometry – objective documentation of facial features - determination of need for surgery -comparison of facial features before & after surgery www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Morphological study of growth patterns of nasolabial region – Farkas  6 measurements in 1593 north American Caucasians ( 1 to 18 yrs )  Age 1 – highest growth of the cutaneous portion of the upper lip & width of the nose Age 5 – upper lip reaches adult size Age 14 to 15 – nose is fully developed   www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • In craniomaxillo- facial surgery “Anthropometry is the objective analysis that replaces subjective judgement”     Mean , standard deviations of key facial measurements at varied ages Rate of growth of each facial region Growth completion of each region Times of maturation www.indiandentalacademy.com
