The large diversity of clinical forms in Angle second class malocclusion explains the interest of researchers and clinicians in identifying changes in the dental arch in subdivisions II/1 and II/2. The purpose of the study is to identify the characteristics of the dental alveolar arch in order to determine the differences between class II/l and II/2 malocclusions. The study was conducted on dental gypsum models of 62 orthodontic untreated patients diagnosed with class II/1 Angle malocclusion, respectively class II/2. The results obtained by us reveals a statistically significant differentiation in the dental arcade, a narrowed maxillary arch at the molar level and elongated at premolar and molar level, in subdivision II/l. Our data are consistent with the results of literature. The knowledge of dental arch features serves to develop a correct and complete diagnosis and also to reach the therapeutic goals and to evaluate post-treatment response in short, medium and long term.
