Figure 6: The two curves to the left indicate the body height (upper) and the growth velocity (lower) expressed as yearly increments in height for girls. The black dots mark a girl aged 12 years 11 month. The girl, recently diagnosed with juvenile periodontitis, is a few centimeters higher than the average for her age (upper curve) and she has passed her pubertal maximum (lower curve). The inserted schematic drawing of a first molar and its surrounding alveolar bone indicates that the continued eruption from first emergence at about 6 years of age to arrested body growth is associated with variations in annual bone apposition. The longest distance between two black lines marking the top of the alveolar bone at different ages between 6 and 17 years indicates the pubertal maximum. To the right the hand radiograph from the girl with a maturity stage according to Greulich and Pyle of the middle phalanx of the third finger: The epiphysis caps its diaphysis (MP3cap). This maturity stage corresponds to about 9 months after pubertal maximum
