Flashcards in Maxillary Canine Deck (22)
When do the maxillary canines erupt?
When is the root completed in maxillary canines?
What is the correct annotation for the maxillary canines?
6 & 11
Describe the central ridge of the maxillary canine.
Prominent and separates 2 developmental grooves.
What is the relationship between the distal cusp ridge and the mesial cusp ridge.
The DCR is longer than the MCR.
From the facial view, where is the cusp of the maxillary canine located?
mesial of the midline
Where is the mesial contact located (facial view)?
Junction of the middle and incisal 1/3
Where is the distal contact located (facial view)?
@ middle 1/3
What characteristic is unique to the distal side of the maxillary canine?
A large bulge will be on the distal side of the tooth that can be seen facially.
Which outline has more convexity?
Describe the anatomy of the root of the maxillary canine.
1. Long & Conical
3. Distal Inclination
Are imbrication lines visible on the maxillary canines?
From the lingual view what three structures are very prominent?
1. MMR & DMR
2. Lingual Ridge
Where is the lingual ridge located?
Extends from the cusp to the cingulum.
From the mesial view, where is the cusp located?
In the long axis of the tooth or just facial.
What is the lingual height of contour for the maxillary canine?
2/3 covex and incisal 1/3 flat.
What is the facial/labial height of contour for the maxillary canine?
Describe the CEJ curvature for the maxillary canine on the mesial view.
Greater curvature than distal.
Is the root of the maxillary canine greater labiolingually or mesial-distally?
What characteristic of the root helps determine mesial from distal in the root?
The distal side has a deeper root concavity.
What are possible variations of the maxillary canines?
1. Cusp sharpness/prescence
2. Degree of slope from cusp.
