Maxillary posterior teeth have close anatomical proximity to the maxillary sinus floor (MSF), and the race, gender, age, side and presence/absence of adjacent teeth may influence the mean distances be...
The mandibular cortical index (MCI) is a measurement based on the visual assessment of changes in the morphology of the mandibular cortex on panoramic radiographs.
BACKGROUND Topographic relationships of mandibular posterior teeth with mandibular cortical plate are extremely important both in terms of infection spread and endodontic and surgical procedures to be...
Acquired open bite mainly occurs after adolescence and is caused by a pathological or biological process. We herein report the case of an 18-year and 10-month-old Japanese woman. Her chief complaint w...
Inability to efficiently clean all root canals due to the complex anatomy of the root canal system is a common cause of endodontic treatment failure.
Posterior crossbite is a common clinical condition often associated with transverse maxillary deficiency and functional mandibular shift. This frequent malocclusion is not self-correcting ...
to date there is no detailed examination of the root and root canal system of maxillary first and second premolars in an Egyptian subpopulation. in this study the investigators do an Obser...
Background and Objectives: Double-jaw surgery is one of the most painful oral surgery, requiring multimodal analgesia including controlled morphine pump and its secondary effects. The aim ...
Enlarged tonsils and malocclusion has relationship with sleep disturbance in children. The consequences of these features can include aggravation of craniofacial growth such that the devel...
This study evaluates the dentoskeletal effects produced by two maxillary protraction protocols in adolescent patients. Half of participants will be treated with a tooth-borne and tooth-bon...
Sudden occurrence of BRADYCARDIA or HEART ARREST induced by manipulations of the MAXILLARY NERVE AND MANDIBULAR NERVE during a craniomaxillofacial or oral surgery. It is the maxillary and mandibular variants of OCULOCARDIAC REFLEX.
The relationship of all the components of the masticatory system in normal function. It has special reference to the position and contact of the maxillary and mandibular teeth for the highest efficiency during the excursive movements of the jaw that are essential for mastication. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p556, p472)
The part of a tooth from the neck to the apex, embedded in the alveolar process and covered with cementum. A root may be single or divided into several branches, usually identified by their relative position, e.g., lingual root or buccal root. Single-rooted teeth include mandibular first and second premolars and the maxillary second premolar teeth. The maxillary first premolar has two roots in most cases. Maxillary molars have three roots. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p690)
The location of the maxillary and the mandibular condyles when they are in their most posterior and superior positions in their fossae of the temporomandibular joint.
Such malposition and contact of the maxillary and mandibular teeth as to interfere with the highest efficiency during the excursive movements of the jaw that are essential for mastication. (Jablonski, Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
