This study examines the validity of Camper's plane as a guide to determine the occlusal plane in edentulous subjects. Based on the data collected from the cephalometric tracings of 40 dentulous and edentulous patients and with the use of the significant correlations of the variables of the maxillomandibular space established from the dentulous group, the dentulous and edentulous groups were classified into four subdivisions based on length and maxillomandibular angle. The occlusal plane/ maxillary plane angles and the occlusal plane/mandibular plane angles were then compared to check for similarities in the two groups.
