1

the ___ has the greatest cervical prominence of any anterior tooth

maxillary canine

2

the maxillary canine, from a proximal view, tends to be positioned with the most nearly ___ axis

vertical

3

which tooth has the greatest overall tooth length?

maxillary canine

4

the ___ has the longest root of any other tooth

maxillary canine

5

which tooth has the greatest FL crown dimension of any anterior tooth?

maxillary canine

6

where is the distal contact on the maxillary canine?

centered

7

___ is the only tooth that has the potential of contacting both anterior and posterior teeth

maxillary canine

8

the maxillary canine cusp tip is located _(facial/palatal)_ to the long axis

-facial
-centered or slightly facial, so the lingual is more visible from the incisal view

9

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

10

the maxillary canine has a facial bulge on the mesial or distal?

distal, so the mesial and distal aspects are asymmetric

11

what is the crown shape of canines from a facial view?

-pentagonal
-dental decks considers it trapezoidal...

12

which tooth has the straightest mesial alignment of crown to root?

mandibular canine

13

the ___ surface of the crown of the mandibular canine is almost parallel to the long axis

mesial

14

which tooth has the longest crown dimension of any other tooth?

mandibular canine

15

the mandibular canine has a _(more/less)_ prominent cingulum than the maxillary canine

less

16

the mandibular canine is _(narrower/wider)_ MD than the maxillary canine

-narrower
-think of the maxillary canine distal bulge and the MD canine flat mesial

17

which anterior tooth most commonly exhibits a bifurcated root?

mandibular canine

18

if a bifurcated root is present on a mandibular canine, where are the roots located?

facial and lingual

19

which tooth has the longest root length of any mandibular tooth?

-mandibular canine
-remember, this is the longest root of any MANDIBULAR tooth, whereas the maxillary canine has the longest root of ANY TOOTH

20

what is the cross-sectional shape of the root of a mandibular canine?

irregularly oval

21

what is the cross-sectional shape of a mandibular canine at the CEJ?

ovoid, but wider MD at the labial

22

in cervical cross-section, the root of the mandibular canine is flattened in a ___ direction

MD

23

when compared to a maxillary canine, the mandibular canine has contact areas located more ___

incisally

24

the mandibular canine has a continuous ___ facial surface from incisal to apical end

-convex
-so it makes a C shape from crown tip to root apex

25

the mandibular canine incisal edge is _(facial/lingual)_ to the long axis

-lingual
-this is opposite of the maxillary canine
