Orthodontic cases, presenting a deep-bite skeletal pattern, show a number of structural and alveolodental features. In order to reveal the areas of imbalance, a study based on the principles of Biggerstaaf's cephalometric analysis was performed : this analysis allows a more precise approach than the classical angular analysis, showing up the proportions of each patient and their variations.

Consequently, it remains possible to assert a treatment strategy.
