Although there is no universally accepted definition of or classification system for trismus, most practitioners agree that the diagnostic criteria include a maximal incisal
opening (MIO) of 20 to 35 mm.
The detofacial analysis showed a convex curve of the incisal
edge to lower lip, considered the ideal situation in 47,1% of cases and straight incisal
edge to lower lip in 45,3% of cases.
Com relacao a analise da curvatura incisal
(Figura 4), partiu-se do principio de que a linha curva imaginaria, que acompanha o trajeto das bordas dos quatro dentes antero-superiores e das pontas de cuspide dos caninos superiores, deve coincidir ou correr paralelamente com a curvatura da borda interna do labio inferior (MILLER, 1989).
Objective evaluation of TMJ function, maximum incisal
opening (MIO), and lateral excursions were recorded on all patients.
Impressions were also made of provisional restorations for fabrication of a new custom incisal
Based on the work of Smith (1992), Nette and Power (NSDNR 1999) devised a 3-level classification system for categorizing the degree of incisor breakage used in this study: slight--indicates < 30% of tooth material missing from the incisal
surface; moderate--indicates 30-60% of tooth material missing from the incisal
surface; and severe--indicates > 60% of tooth material missing from the incisal
fruits) and drinking large quantities of diet soda, all of which are extremely acidic, contribute to increased rate of tooth erosion, leading to thin or discolored enamel with sharp or notched appearance of incisal
edges, raised amalgams, open anterior bites, and cheilosis (Bishop et al.
In children exposed to lead sources from mining, paint, or gasoline in communities such as the Broken Hill lead mining community, it has been shown that the source of lead from the incisal
sections was different from the source of lead in the cervical sections of deciduous teeth, reflecting the change in lead from exposure in utero to that in early childhood (Gulson 1996; Gulson and Wilson 1994).
Thinning of the radial enamel was noted in the medial groove of the upper incisor of Geomys, and also has been noted in the incisal
groove of a pocket mouse, Chaetodipus penicillatus (T.
Talk about: Diastemas, crowded, rotated, yellow teeth and teeth with uneven incisal
Mondial 8i-5 degree posteriors, as with all Mondial i teeth, offer such exceptional features as increased transparency and an enhanced incisal
edge for those special cases or customers who require enhanced characteristics.
The rubber stopper on the inserted file was then set to the incisal
