Abstract: Objective: To study the prevalence of bimaxillary protrusion among Palestinians. Materials and Methods: Cephalometric radiographs for 79 normal occlusion adult Palestinian university students were traced. Results: The interincisal angle was decreased in the Palestinian women compared to the Caucasian means, but this had no impact on lip protrusion. Conclusion: Relative to Caucasian cephalometric norms, Palestinians show no extraoral bimaxillary protrusion features, and therefore, these norms can be applied to Palestinian faces.
