BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The soft-tissue layer and facial skeleton influence the harmony and equilibrium of the face. The evaluation of the patient's structural and soft-tissue features is one of the most crucial steps in preparing for the diagnosis and treatment of oral-maxillofacial orthodontics. Clinicians can intervene with the proper treatment at the proper time to achieve the best results by being aware of the traits and variations of soft tissue at various developmental stages and in various races. To obtain a consistent treatment result in terms of function and aesthetically pleasing results, patients, and forecast, the growth that may take place after the orthopedic therapy has concluded. OBJECTIVE: To examine the soft-tissue features of the oral-maxillofacial area in Vietnamese adults (aged 18–25 years) by evaluating cephalometric radiographs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a cross-sectional descriptive study, 85 students from Can Tho University of Medicine and Pharmacy took part. Students' lateral cephalograms were taken in compliance with the sample requirements. RESULTS: Men's lip protrusion (4.30 ± 0.71) was higher than women's (3.88 ± 0.97) (P = 0.024 <.05) and men's (-4.88 ± 0.93) chin lip groove depth was higher than women's (-4.24 ± 0.93) (P = 0.002), both with a P value of. 05. CONCLUSIONS: The study identified a statistically significant difference in the protrusion of the top lip and the depth of the cleft lip between the male and female, demonstrating that the soft-tissue features of Vietnamese students were distinct from those of other races.
