SummaryObjectiveThis study aimed to evaluate the association between facial width and length and fundamental frequency (F0) and habitual frequency.Study designProspective cross-sectional study.SubjectsA total of 50 subjects (35 females;15 males) were included in this study.MethodsLateral and posteroanterior cephalometric measurements included: facial height (N-Me); widths of the maxilla (J-J), mandible (AG-AG), and face (Zyg-Zyg); ratios J-J to AG-AG, N-Me to Zyg-Zyg, and lower face to total face heights. All subjects underwent acoustic analysis using Visi-Pitch IV. Sample was stratified according to age and gender.ResultsIn the total group (mean age: 14.19Â±6.49 years; range 6-35 years), a significantly moderate negative correlation existed between Zyg-Zyg, J-J, and AG-AG, and F0 and habitual pitch. Similarly, N-Me moderately correlated with habitual pitch. In males, there was a significant moderate negative correlation between Zyg-Zyg and J-J, and habitual pitch, and between J-J and F0 (â0.571;p=0.026). In females, a significant moderate correlation existed between Zyg-Zyg and AG-AG, and habitual pitch, and between AG-AG and F0 (â0.347;p=0.041). In the prepubertal group (n=25), a negative moderate correlation occurred between J-J and AG-AG, N-Me and habitual frequency, and between J-J and F0 (â0.407;p=0.043). In the postpubertal group, there was a significant moderate correlation only between AG-AG and F0 (â0.403;p=0.046).ConclusionFacial length correlates significantly with habitual frequency, and facial width correlates significantly with both F0 and habitual pitch. A larger sample of adult subjects is needed to substantiate this conclusion.
