    Aim: The aim of this study is to relate the palatal height with the facial form which will act as a aid in the treatment planning and diagnosis. Materials and Methods: Pre-operative study casts and the photographs of 100 patients were taken. The measurements for facial width and height were taken for calculating facial form. The palatal height is measured from the deepest point near the molar region on the midpalatine raphe in the study casts. Results: From the clinical study, there was a strong correlation between the palatal depth and the facial form of the individuals which can be used as an indicator to detect malocclusions and photographs can be used as an alternative communication among the orthodontists regarding the treatment planning. Discussion: There is no significant correlation between the palatal depth and facial form. As the facial height increases, there is no increase in the palatal form which does not result in the narrowing of arches. Conclusion: Thus, the facial form cannot be also used as an indicator for identifying the probability of malocclusion and its related strategies with the irregularities of teeth alignment.
