The purpose of this study was to investigate the facial morphologic characteristics in children with long and short faces. Lateral cephalometric radiographs of 46 children with long faces and 42 children with short faces were used. Both boys and girls with long faces exhibited upright incisors, excessive upper dentoalveolar development, shorter posterior face height, shorter ramus height and mandibular body, greater gonial angle and backward rotation of mandible when compared with those with short faces.
