( P = 0.
Terminal plane relationship of the second primary molars was evaluated and recorded as class 1: the distal surfaces of maxillary and mandibular primary second molars
lie in the same vertical plan; class 2: the distal surface of the mandibular primary second molar
is posterior to that of maxillary primary second molar
; and class 3: the distal surface of the mandibular primary second molar
is anterior to that of the maxillary primary second molar
