The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation between the condylar angulation and the following variables: occlusion, facial type, depth of cut, overbite, overjet, interincisal angle, age, and sex. Pretreatment lateral cephalograms, submental vertex radiographs and study models were obtained for 114 patients (66 females, 48 males) with a mean age of 16 who were considered to have normal, asymptomatic temporomandibular joints. The results indicated that no significant correlation existed between the condylar angulation and the variables measured. Therefore, there is no method of predicting the condylar angulation by occlusion characteristics, facial type, age, or sex.
