Standing natural head position is a reproducible, physiologically determined aspect of function. Recent studies have demonstrated associations between this aspect of function and the form of the skeletodental features, in both growing and nongrowing persons. A simple method has been devised which obviates the need for multiple radiographs to determine the clinical reliability of the method. The device, its construction, and method of use are described.
