Background. The aim of the study was to reveal the relationship between the variants of dental occlusion and the dimensional characteristics of the facial part of the human head
Materials and methods. An examination of 400 women and 400 men aged between 17 and 24 was conducted. Cephalometric part of the study included the measurement of 17 facial parameters of the head. Stomatological part of the survey involved assessment of the occlusal relationship of the dental arches in the sagittal, vertical and horizontal planes.
Results. It was detected that the mesial occlusion and the open bite are more typical than distal and deep types of bite in people with high values of the facial parameters of the head. The values of the lower facial depth revealed in men and women with distal occlusion are shorter in the comparison with mesial and neutral bite types.
Conclusions. The detected interrelations between the parameters of the facial part of the head and types of occlusal relationship in men and women aged between 17 and 24 can be applied as criteria in early diagnosis of dentoalveolar anomalies, as well as during prediction of the level and direction of changes in the size of one parameter when influencing the value of another while conducting the orthodontic treatment and prosthodontics. 

Key words
