Abstract

Introduction: The study was undertaken to evaluate the reliability of cervical vertebrae as skeletal age maturation in response to chronological age and evaluate the relationship between DEMIRIJAN system of mandibular canine calcification and cervical vertebral maturation as a clinical method for skeletal maturation indicator.
Materials and Methods: 120 children (60 females and 60 males) were randomly selected in the age range of 8-14 years.
Results: 23.3% of males showed E stage of (canine calcification stage) CCS and stage II of cervical vertebral maturation (CVM), 16.6% showed F stage of CCS and stage III of CVM, 13.3% showed stage G of CCS and Stage III of CVM 8.3% showed stage G of CCS and stage IV of CVM. 13.3% of females showed E stage of CCS and stage II of CVM, 13.3% showed F stage of CCS and stage III of CVM, 16.67% showed stage G of CCS and Stage III of CVM, 15% shows stage G of CCS and stage IV of CVM,.
Conclusions: The correlation values between the Chronological age, dental calcification stages and cervical vertebrae maturation method were high. Attaining of maturity in canine calcification and cervical vertebrae maturational stages was ahead in females when compared to males.

Keywords: Cervical vertebrae, Cephalometrics, Canine calcification.
