Successful orthodontic treatment outcome depends on an accurate diagnosis along with clinical management of vertical and transverse discrepancies. Thus, this study is carried out to evaluate dental arch and alveolar width along with buccolingual inclination of maxillomandibular teeth in different malocclusions. Materials and Methods: Based on the Angle's classification of malocclusion, 140 study models were selected and four separate groups were formed-normal occlusion, Class I malocclusion,

Buccolingual inclination of posterior teeth were measured. Lateral cephalogram of all the sample subjects was taken to calculate SNA, SNB,
