The second part of this paper aims to present the conceptual maps of measures relating to dental arches, apical bases, morphodifferential behavior of the mandibular incisor in relation to maxilla and mandible, as well as measurements that generate information about soft tissue profile. Based on USP – Bauru’s cephalometry book, we clarified how sela turcica’s (turkish saddle’s) anatomical variations and frontonasal suture’s anatomical variations can alter the numerical value of the measurements related to dental arches and apical bases, and could lead to a misdiagnoses of incisors’ inclination and positioning in their respective bone bases, as well as the possibility of anatomical variations in the frontonasal suture alter the numerical value of Line I and H.NB angle, which may lead to wrong conclusions.
