Resumen

GAETE-BALDI, Marcelo  y  MUNOZ-OLAVARRIA, Matías. Knebelman craniometric method: clinical modification to simplify the determination of the Vertical Occlusal Dimension. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp.27-30. ISSN 0719-0107.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-01072019000100027.

Objective:

to determine the relationship between the clinical distance Eye / Tragus and the cranial distance Eye / Ear.

Materials and Methods:

In a group of 100 individuals, 50 men and 50 women, two measurements were made. Distance from the anterior wall of the external auditory canal to the lateral corner of the orbit with the Knebelman craniometer and distance from the facial tragus furrow to the external angle of the eye with a digital meter foot. A descriptive and concordance statistical analysis of Bland & Atlman was carried out on these measures.

Results:

The distances showed a mean difference of -0.761 mm. in the total, -0.670 mm. in men, -0,852 mm. in women. Statistical analysis was concordant only in men. The magnitude analysis of overestimate established 2.34%in the total and 0.23% in women. With these data, the proportional adjustment factor of the original method was modified.

Conclusion:

There is no perfect agreement between the two distances, but the overestimates analysis allows us to modify the Knebelman method for its clinical application without Craniometer, establishing that the clinical distance from the facial tragus furrow to the external angle of the eye minus 5 mm. allows us to evaluate or establish the Vertical Occlusal Dimension.

Palabras clave : Vertical occlusal dimension; Craniometer; Knebelman.
