Interestingly, the supernumerary condition in sloths appears to be an artifact of the Family Megalonychidae, as one occurrence has been noted in the extinct genus Megalonyx, in which the additional tooth was also restricted to the maxillary dentition
(McDonald, 1978; Miles and Grigson, 1990).
Full-mouth rehabilitation was undertaken but later, in the permanent dentition, the patient was diagnosed with dilaceration of the maxillary left permanent central incisor, severely crowded maxillary dentition
and palatally displaced second premolars (Figure 5a).
In a growing child the use of face mask8 and force application systems that attach elastic forces to the maxillary dentition
has been used to correct midface deficiencies.
The maxillary dentition
was restored with a conventional denture because the patient had been wear- ing, had tolerated, and had accepted a complete denture.
Class II malocclusions can be corrected by combinations of restriction or redirection of the maxillary growth, distal movement of the maxillary dentition
, mesial movement of the mandibular dentition, and enhancement or redirection of the mandibular growth.
Loss of a first premolar occurred in 24 individuals; all but one were in the maxillary dentition
This was done, by obtaining various views, such as plain axial, sagittal CT slices, as well as superior, sagittal and superior-oblique views of the maxillary dentition
TABLE 1: PERCENTAGE OF MISSING TEETH IN MAXILLARY DENTITION
Extra oral findings were not very much significant except missing left side maxillary dentition
which was evident due to functional movement of lips during speaking and smiling etc (Fig.
7 Preston8 studied the relationship of golden proportion to the perspective dimension of maxillary dentition
The results of the present study demonstrated more mandibular dentition bracket de-bonding as compared to the maxillary dentition.
It was observed that the mandibular dentition showed greater bracket bonding failure as compared to the maxillary dentition during treatment.
