Plaster models were constructed and orthopantomographs were taken for 86 male and 70 female primary school pupils, whose upper and lower permanent 4 incisors and 1st molars were completely erupted without crowding; whose deciduous canines and molars were found almost uniformly even without any visible tooth fractures, dental caries or restorations on proximal surfaces of the teeth. Certain reference points on the orthophantomograph were set up and measured and the values were compared with actual or predicted values from the models. The following results were obtained : 1. In regards to available space, the values from the orthopantomograph were greater than the values from the models by a mean of 3.24% on the upper and 10.06% on the lower for males; 3.05% on the upper and 10.01% on the lower for females. 2. In regards to total mesiodistal widths of permanent canine, 1st and 2nd premolars, the values from the orthopantomograph were greater than the presumed values based on the size of lower permanent 3 incisors from the models by a mean of 18.50% on the upper and 24.09% on the lower for males; 14.54 on the upper and 20.51% on the lower for females. 3. Comparing the magnified values of total mesiodistal widths of permanent canine, 1st and 2nd premolars with those of available space, the regression constants of regression equation (Y=a+bX) berween them were a=3.2336, b=0.6533 on the upper and a=5.0138, b=0.4390 on the lower for males ; a=2.5994, b=0.6521 on the upper and a=3.0113, b=0.6586 on the lower for females. 4. The correlation coefficients between the magnified values of available space and permanent canine, 1st and 2nd premolars were moderately positive as 0.6474 in the upper and 0.505 on the lower for males; 0.6493 on the upper and 0.6183 on the lower for females. 5. In regards to magnified values of the available space from the orthopantomographs there were no significant difference between sexes, (p>0.05) but of the total mesiodistal widths of permanent canine, 1st and 2nd premolars, a significant difference between sexes was found.(p<0.01)
