The article presents the main craniometric and gnatometric parameters used in the analysis of A.M. Schvartz for boys and girls of the Podillia region of Ukraine with orthognathic bite, estimating the sexual differences of these parameters and compares the obtained results with the data that are proposed as normative. It is shown that the majority of craniometric and gnatometric parameters obtained in boys and girls of Podillia with orthognathic bite practically have no differences with the magnitude of these parameters obtained by A.M. Schvartz.
