Clinically, central incisors fractures caused by fron- tal impacts fall into three categories according to the direction and position of fracture lines: (a) horizontal crown fracture involving the mesio-distal angles or (oblique fracture of the whole incisal edge) (b) oblique fractures involving the mesial angle of the central in- cisors (c) oblique fractures involving the distal angle of the central incisors.
The anatomy of the incisal edge of the central incisor reveals that the distal incisal angle is thicker and more rounded than the mesial incisal angle, which consequently makes it prone to fracture with relatively less impact forces than the distal angle.
To reveal the Radix paramolaris, a second radiograph should be taken from a more mesial or distal angle (20 degrees).
