  1. Overall statistics were significant with p < 0.00
  2. Model II of treatment need/children was adjusted to the variables maxillary overjet, crowding, spacing and anterior open bite
  3. Model II of treatment need of their child/mothers was adjusted to the variables maxillary overjet, maxillary misalignment, molar relation, and anterior open bite
