The purpose of this study is to determine the changes in the posterior and anterior facial heights as well as in their proportions that occur between the age of 10 years and adulthood in subjects with normal occlusion in Croatian population. The investigation was carried out on 199 lateral cephalometric radiographs of patients divided into five age groups. The radiographs were traced and the following measurements have been derived : s-go = posterior face height; n m = anterior face height and s-go/n-m % = face height ratio. Posterior face height dimensions (s-go) in total sample showed an increase of 10,72 mm between 10 years of age to adulthood (12.9%). The mean anterior face height (n-m) value in whole sample increases from 112,99 to 123,49 mm which is 10,5 mm or 8,5 %. Anterior-posterior face heights ratio showed slight increase from 63,97 to 67,14 % from the youngest to the oldest age group. All measured face dimensions are higher in males than in females in all groups.
