Flashcards in Dental Anatomy Permanent Canines Deck (25)
the ___ has the greatest cervical prominence of any anterior tooth
the maxillary canine, from a proximal view, tends to be positioned with the most nearly ___ axis
which tooth has the greatest overall tooth length?
the ___ has the longest root of any other tooth
which tooth has the greatest FL crown dimension of any anterior tooth?
where is the distal contact on the maxillary canine?
___ is the only tooth that has the potential of contacting both anterior and posterior teeth
the maxillary canine cusp tip is located _(facial/palatal)_ to the long axis
-centered or slightly facial, so the lingual is more visible from the incisal view
the middle facial lobe of the maxillary canine includes the ___
-cusp tip (this is opposite of the mandibular canine)
-so the lingual is more visible from the incisal view
the maxillary canine has a facial bulge on the mesial or distal?
distal, so the mesial and distal aspects are asymmetric
what is the crown shape of canines from a facial view?
-dental decks considers it trapezoidal...
which tooth has the straightest mesial alignment of crown to root?
the ___ surface of the crown of the mandibular canine is almost parallel to the long axis
which tooth has the longest crown dimension of any other tooth?
the mandibular canine has a _(more/less)_ prominent cingulum than the maxillary canine
the mandibular canine is _(narrower/wider)_ MD than the maxillary canine
-think of the maxillary canine distal bulge and the MD canine flat mesial
which anterior tooth most commonly exhibits a bifurcated root?
if a bifurcated root is present on a mandibular canine, where are the roots located?
facial and lingual
which tooth has the longest root length of any mandibular tooth?
-remember, this is the longest root of any MANDIBULAR tooth, whereas the maxillary canine has the longest root of ANY TOOTH
what is the cross-sectional shape of the root of a mandibular canine?
what is the cross-sectional shape of a mandibular canine at the CEJ?
ovoid, but wider MD at the labial
in cervical cross-section, the root of the mandibular canine is flattened in a ___ direction
when compared to a maxillary canine, the mandibular canine has contact areas located more ___
the mandibular canine has a continuous ___ facial surface from incisal to apical end
-so it makes a C shape from crown tip to root apex
