      Abstract :

      The assessment of craniofacial profile should include three following items: 1) the skeletal pattern; 2) the denture pattern; 3) the soft tissue. The cephalometric data of the China ethnic are apparently inadequate compared to other ethnic group as of Javanese. The purpose of this study is to provide more information, which leads to better understanding of craniofacial profiles in Chinese and Javanese adults having normal occlusion and excellent profile. The material of this study was measured by the Downs analytical method and soft tissue line analysis. The results showed that the Javanese facial profile is a combination of an average or high facial angle with a moderate facial convexity, associate with prominent dental protrusion. The Chinese individual has flatter mandibular plane angle and more forward growth of the chin than the Javanese. Both Chinese and Javanese have prominent dental protrusion, but the maxillary incisors of Javanese are more protrusive than those of Chineses. In the compare to the Chinese ethnic soft tissue is showed more growth and better development of the chin than the Javanese. There are differences significant between male and female in hard and soft craniofacial profile in Chinese and Javanese.
