Where is the Facial Depression in relation to the Cervical Ridge in the Max1M
Occlusal and Parallel to
*remember, starts at Lingual groove terminus (cervical limit of)
Where do the Vertical Facial ridges extending from the cusp tips in the Max1M terminate?
Where is the Cervical Ridge of the Max1M?
Describe the Lingual Cusp of the Max1M
Mesiolingual cusp - 60%
Distolingual cusp - 40%
Describe the lingual groove of the Max1M
Begins as Distal Oblique and slants cervically and diagonally until middle
Then, parallel to long axis
The mesiofacial and mesiodistal triangular ridges of the Max1M compare to the premolars in what way?
Not as inclined
What lines up vertically with the long axis of the mesial surface of the Max1M?
How does it get there?
Mesial Marginal Ridge Groove
Crosses Mesial Marginal Ridge
How many roots are visible from the Mesial view of the Max1M?
Which root is wider?
The root trunk of the mesial view of the Max1M is shorter than the facial view (4mm).
From what view is the trifurcation concavity evident in the Max1M?
Describe the Mesiofacial Root of the Max1M
Extends facially in middle 1/3
Tapers lingually to blunt tip (apex)
Apex right under Mesiofacial cusp
What other surface can be seen from the Distal view of the Max1M?
Why does the Maxillary 1st Molar narrow distally?
Cervical Ridges flatten distally
Name the cusp sizes from larges to smallest on the Maxillary 1st Molar
What are the 2 major fossae of the Max1M?
What separates the Central and Distal fossae of the Max1M?
Describe the Facial Groove of the Max2M
What facial cusp is wider in the Max2M
Mesiofacial wider than Distofacial
Describe the Cervical Line in the Max2M
Apical dip midway
From the lingual aspect of the Max2M, what angle is important?
Mesiocuspal Ridge to the Mesial Outline (which is relatively straight)
What is the mesiodistal width of the Distolingual cusp in the Max2M
Name the cusps that can be seen from the Mesial view of the Max2M
What cusp isn't seen?
Distolingual NOT seen
How many roots can be seen from the Mesial view of the Max2M?
Describe the Facial and Lingual crown outlines from the Mesial Aspect of the Max2M
Describe the Mesial Marginal Ridge of the Max2M
Where are the Acute angles of the occlusal view of the Max2M?
Mesiofacial and Distolingual Line Angles
Which line angles of the Max2M are obtuse?
Distofacial and Mesiolingual
Where is the mesiofacial cusp?
Most facially and mesially placed cusp
Most lingually and distally places cusp
*More than others because of rhomboid
How many cusps are on the Max2M?
What cusp of the Max2M is most mesial?
Which is most distal?
What cusp of the Max2M is most Facial?
What 2 Ridges of the Max2M meet closer to the Central Pit than in the Max1M?
Triangular Ridge of the Distofacial Cusp
Distal Cuspal Ridge of the Mesiolingual Cusp
