Huckaba Analysis..

  • The value obtained for the mandibular incisors on the cast and those for canines and premolars on the radiographs were added to provide the space required.
  • Space available is obtained by extending the brass wire from the mesio buccal of 1st permanent molar on one side, passing¬† through the incisal edge of anterior teeth, and to the buccal cusps of 1st molar on the opposite side.
  • The difference in the value obtained for space required and space available is the amount of discrepancy.
  • This procedures combines measuremnts from the dental casts and width measurements from the peri apical radiographs.
  • This method (1956); modified by Staley & Kerbers(1980) is restricted to the analysis of the supporting zone in the mandible.
