SNB (°) 77.46 ± 3.55 77.21 ± 4.02 0.807
ANB difference (°) 3.95 ± 2.19 4.04 ± 2.34 0.886
Wits (mm) −0.86 ± 3.00 −1.47 ± 3.27 0.480
SN-GoMe (°) 37.45 ± 6.33 38.49 ± 6.52 0.560
U1 to SN (°) 110.99 ± 6.17 104.79 ± 6.46 0.001**
IMPA (°) 103.69 ± 7.00 99.52 ± 6.01 0.024*
Interincisal angle (°) 107.89 ± 7.54 117.22 ± 7.51 0.000***
Upper lip to E-line (mm) 2.49 ± 2.11 2.50 ± 2.08 0.994
Lowe lip to E-line (mm) 4.75 ± 2.17 5.15 ± 2.49 0.541
Nasolabial angle (°) 96.70 ± 10.04 99.35 ± 11.99 0.385
Mentolabial sulcus angle (°) 134.40 ± 11.31 135.95 ± 13.99 0.659

Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation.

Independent t-tests were performed to compare the two groups.

IMPA, incisor mandibular plane angle.

*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001.

See Figure 1 and Table 2 for definitions of each landmark.
