Uvula, Short


Uvula, Short

Objective: Decreased length of the uvula


Objective measurement of the length of the uvula can be determined on a lateral cephalograms. However, in this series we are not relying on radiographs for assessment of findings. In clinical practice, the size of the uvula cannot be easily measured and is not static, since it depends on the position of the soft palate, the base of the tongue, and the head. Therefore, judgment of change in length of the uvula depends heavily on the experience of the observer.
