Portuguese term or phrase: compasso de ponta seca
O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a presença da Proporção Áurea na relação entre a distância intercantal dos olhos(DIO) e a largura dos incisivos centrais superiores (LICS), e na relação entre a distância entre as cúspides dos caninos e a largura interalar.
Com um paquímetro digital foram medidas as DIO e interalar, e com um compasso de ponta seca, as distâncias entre as cúspides dos caninos superiores e a LICS.
