Canis dirus has a deep and robust mandible, a short and robust canine, a p1 that is single rooted and with a single principal cusp, a p2 that is double rooted with a small posterior accessory cuspid, a p3 with a large posterior accessory cusp, a large and robust p4 that is larger than the p3, and a massive and heavy ml with small accessory cuspids on the posterior margin of the trigonid (Merriam, 1912; Berta, 1988).
In the English dental literature and it is now the performed combination of radiographs for localizing impacted maxillary cuspid. In 1999 Jacobs recommended, when using this combination, to routinely increase the vertical angulations for the occlusal radiographs by 100 to achieve a greater image shift.
The BFP covered the buccal defects posteriorly to the soft palate, and anteriorly to the cuspid region.
Effect of cuspid positioning in the cleft at the time of secondary alveolar bone grafting on eventual graft success.
In the present study first molars were not measured for predicting canine and premolars width but incisor can be used significantly for cuspid and premolars width.
Therefore it is suitable for orthodontic patients as it is very difficult to make adjustments from cuspid to cuspid as opposed to molar area.17 The system calls for use of three clear plastic templates, the diagnostic orthoforms that can be placed over study model allowing to select arch form with proper intercuspid width and anterior curvature.17
The tumor may be partly cystic or it may present only as a mass in the wall of the large cyst."2 This tumor occurs more frequently in the anterior part of the jaws with 76% developing anterior to cuspid in the maxilla and the mandible.
There was 3.41o molar tipping with 0.20 mm extrusion and 7.33 o distal tipping with 0.90 mm second cuspid extrusion whereas incisors had 1.65 o labial tipping.
Although the reproducibility of measurements is high, the usefulness of the instrument is limited, due to its design which primarily can be used only in the upper incisor, cuspid, and first premolar regions.
Moreover, the amount of displacement on the cuspid of canine in the group B was approximately twice than that in the groups A and C.
The crown is wider in the cuspid part and narrower towards the crown-base boundary.
Depending on the occlusal pattern of the individual, no single tooth should be overloaded during excursions with either group function or a cuspid protected occlusion.
Considering the topic "occlusion" in the dental literature, this term is used for 4 different entities: (1) the anatomic or "orthodontic" jaw relation: the Angle classification, (2) static contact between the teeth of the upper and lower jaws, (3) dynamic contact between the teeth of the upper and lower jaws, for example, cuspid guidance versus group function, articulation, and occlusal interferences, and (4) the prosthetic classifications, more specifically, the complete/incomplete dentition versus complete dentitions and the presence of fixed/removable prosthetics.
