    Aim and Objective: The aim and objective were to evaluate the upper airway in different malocclusions using lateral cephalograms. Materials and Methods: Pretreatment lateral cephalometric radiographs of 60 (both males and females) were categorized into three classes (Classes I-III), range of 18–40 years, and no history of sleep-related disorders and obesity. The cephalometric parameters assessed included upper airway measurements and studied for different malocclusion types. Three groups were formed: Class I (20), Class II (20), and Class III (20). Results: The results concluded that there is no statistically significant difference seen in all the three classes (Classes I–III) in upper airway dimensions and did not vary significantly in all the three classes. Conclusion: There is no significant difference in upper airway in different skeletal malocclusion patterns.
