Objective: To establish normal data of the facial soft tissue of the Jordanian adults and to compare male with female values. This could be helpful for both the clinicians and researchers in the field of orthodontics. Method: This study conducted on a sample comprised of subjects (50 females and 50 males) who attended an orthodontic clinic at princess Haya Bint Al-Hussien military hospital in Ajloun, Jordan for various reasons. Age was on average from (18-25) years. The sample was chosen randomly over a period of one year. For each participant a standard lateral cephalogram radiograph was taken. Result: A total of 100 lateral cephalogram radiographs were analyzed. The data showed that H angle is larger in male adults than females; indicate that facial convexity is more in male adults. While the total nose prominence and the lower lip showed insignificant gender differences in our sample. Conclusion: Holdaway found that orthodontic treatment goals were much improved when soft tissues features were taken into account during treatment planning.
