The skull-cervical position is an important factor in the morphological diagnosis of bone, joint and myofunctional discrepancies. Based on the various classes skeletal differences are observed in the locations that are critical points Craneometric diagnosis of orthostatic balance skull with the cervical portion of the spine. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare Skull-cervical position in skeletal class II and III. Hundred fourteen lateral skull radiographs were collected, analyzed and compared the craniometric points through cephalometric with Rocabado technique. The results show a statistically significant difference in the positions for each skeletal cranial both class distances as rotation between the skull and cervical portion of the spine.
