Figure 1 A photograph of the hard palate showing the following: the incisive foramen (IF); the greater palatine foramen (GPF); the posterior nasal spine (PNS); the midline maxillary suture (MMS); orale: the point at the anterior end of the incisive suture located between the sockets of the two maxillary central incisors; maxillary second molar (M2); maxillary third molar (M3); GPF-MMS: perpendicular distance from the GPF to the MMS; GPF-PBHP: distance from the GPF to the posterior border of the hard palate. * indicates angle between the MMS and the line from the IF and the GPF; a, b: palatine breadth.
