The tooth crown includes three main cusps
sigmoidally incurved, with a distinct lateral carina.
We use Trusler repair for prolapsing aortic valve cusps
First described in 1790 by Johann Hieronymus Schroter, the cusp
extensions frequently appear unequal in length and often contain irregularities in the form of brighter spots and arc segments or dark interruptions.
Results: The thickness of functional cusps
of both cast metal and metal ceramic crown were of <ideal thickness where as non functional cusp
of cast metal crown was bulbous.
The lengths of right and left atrioventricular valvular cusps
were also measured.
Literature shows that 45% of individuals have two cusps
type premolars and 55% have three cusps
Capromeryx mexicana specimens analyzed for mesowear showed high cusps
with either sharp or rounded cusp
morphologies (DP3322 and DP4310 show high and sharp cusps
whereas DP3328 displays high and rounded cusps
), resulting in a mean mesowear score of 0.
The position of the ostia with reference to the sinutubular [ST] ridge and the upper margin of cusps
The square shaped second upper molar represents four main cusps
with accessory cusps
The clinical problems seen in patients with talon cusps
comprise of stagnation of food, caries, periapical lesions, irritation of tongue during speech and mastication, other soft tissue irritation, breast feeding problems, compromised aesthetics, occlusal interference which may lead to accidental cusp
fracture, displacement of the affected tooth, temporomandibular joint pain, and periodontal problems because of excessive occlusal force.
The groove pattern of the second lower deciduous molars and first lower permanent molars describes the configuration of contact of the cusps
and their number.
Significant differences of these CMDTs were observed: Carabelli's cusp
, configuration of cusps
X5 and X6 (36, 46, FDI notation), and +4 and +5 (37, 47, FDI notation), absence of hypocone reduction, relative frequency of cusp
7, and low frequency of shovel-shaped incisors and double shovel, which are typical of the groups belonging or influenced by populations of the Caucasoid dental complex.
Legs I to IV uniform pale yellow; dense scopulae on metatarsi and tarsi, remaining leg segments covered in fine, less dense setae; leg spines and cusps
These minerals are used to reinforce the tooth cusps
, increasing their resilience when feeding on hard substrates such as rock (Lowenstam, 1962; Weiner and Addadi, 2002; Shaw et al.
Type II lesions were linear perforations along the base of the cusps
parallel to the sewing ring.
