Reproducibility of natural head position

J Dent. 1991 Apr;19(2):130-1. doi: 10.1016/0300-5712(91)90111-b.


The orientation of the head, when the natural head position was adopted, was measured relative to the true vertical on standardized black and white profile photographs. Two methods of obtaining the natural head position were compared and their reproducibility tested. No statistically significant difference was found between the two different methods or at different sittings.
