Table 3 Relative distributions of the combined dental maturation stages according to the growth phases

From: Diagnostic performance of combined canine and second molar maturity for identification of growth phase

Tooth and maturation stage N Growth phase
Pre-pubertal (%) Pubertal (%) Post-pubertal (%)
Combination of two stages     
 Canine G with second molar F 32 68.8 25.0 6.3
 Canine G with second molar G 12 41.7 41.7 16.7
 Canine H with second molar F 17 52.9 23.5 23.5
 Canine H with second molar G 72 22.2 38.9 38.9
Combination of three stages     
 Canine G with second molar F/G 44 61.4 29.5 9.1
 Canine H with second molar F/G 89 28.1 36.0 36.0
 Canine G/H with second molar F 46 60.9 28.3 10.9
 Canine G/H with second molar G 87 27.6 36.8 35.6
  1. The cases for the canine stage up to stage F or the second molar stage up to stage E, and those for the second molar stage from stage H, which showed positive LHRs ≥10 for the diagnosis of the pre-pubertal and post-pubertal growth phases, respectively, are not shown.
