Introduction: Thalassemia is a hereditary blood disorder that leads to moderate or severe anemia. This anemia is associated with decreasing hemoglobin levels, thus reducing the erythrocyte count to a lower than normal level. Erythrocytes with less hemoglobin are more susceptible to hemolysis, which reduces their life.
Objectives: To analyze the maxillary inter-incisor width among patients with beta thalassemia major (BTM) in the Sundanese population of Indonesia.
Methods: This cross-sectional study included patients with BTM and normal children, and used a consecutive sampling method. The participantsÂ’ maxillary impressions were molded and the inter-incisor width measured. Statistical analysis was performed using ANOVA and post hoc test, with P values

Key words: Maxillary Inter-incisor Width; Beta Thalassemia Major; Indonesian Sundanese Population
