The purpose of this investigation was to know the means of the T.MJ. space and to compare spational differences in centric relation and centric occlusion by the T.MJ. Tomogram and to study the correlation between the articular eminence slope and the lingual surface slope of the maxillary central incisor by the Cephalogram in near normal occlusion subjects. These results could give contribution for the diagnosis of orthodontic treatment and T.M.J. dysfunction and the assessment of orthopedic treatment and orthognathic surgery. 44 young adults (28 men and 16 women, 21 to 27 years of age) were selected from the Dental students in Yonsei Univ. Cnteria for selection was normal occlusion, no clinical signs and T.M.J. dysfunction, no history of orthodontic treatment, and no missing tooth. After submental vertex view analysis, each subject was given the T.M.J. Tomogram in centric relation and centric occlusion and the Cephalogram was given with Quint Sectograph. All data was recorded and statistically processed With the CYBER computer system. Results were analyzed the following findings and conclusions were derived. 1. The mean value for the combined right and left anterior joint space was 2.549mm, the posterior space was 2.260mm, and superior space was 3.31mm in centric relation. The anterior space was 2.316mm, posterior space was 2.474mm, and superior space was 3.435mm in centric occlusion 2. In the centric relation position, both condyles were placed more posterioly and superioly in their fossae than in the centric occlusion position by the spatial difference. 3. In the centric occlusion position, both condyles were more symmetrically placed in their fossae with equal anterior-posterioly rather than in the centric relation position. 4. The mean articular eminence angle was 48.19° and the mean fossa height was 7.911mm. A strong positive correlation between the articular eminence angle and fossa height in T.M.J Tomogram was found. 5. In Cephalometnc analysis, there was a strong positive correlation between the articular eminence slope and the lingual surface slope of the upper central incisor to the FH plane, occlusal plane, and S-N plane. 6. There was moderate positive correlation between the S-E measurements and the fossa height, articular eminence angle, and DcGn<F-H.
