Objective: The comparison between dimensions of dental arch parameters of children (3-5yrs) age according to feeding habits. Method: 15 bottle feed and breast feed babies age (3-5yrs) were selected randomly according to their feeding habits attending private dental clinic. Impressions for both upper and lower arches were taken. Study models were then assessed for dental arch parameters directly using Verneer Caliper's. Results: No statistically significant difference found between the dental arch parameters for two groups except for arch lengths, for breast feed babies, and is more for mandibular arch. Conclusion: Only the length of dental arches have effect on them which is mainly considered due to muscular activity. The reason for not getting significant findings in other parameters could be due to small sample size, shorter duration of the study. But results can be considered as a preliminary indicator for the given age cohort.
