In this clinical case, the patient sought orthodontic treatment for the correction of a dentoalveolar protrusion; since she had an early loss of the first lower molars, it was proposed extraction of upper first bicuspids and lower space closure with retraction of anterior teeth, utilizing the extraction already done in inferior arch instead of taking out first bicuspids.
Based on this methodological premise, 40 erupted sound human maxillary first bicuspids (20 right and 20 left) were collected from white adult patients aged 19-31 years (mean age: 23.7 [+ or -] 4.2 years), submitted to corrective orthodontic treatment with tooth extraction at a private clinic in the city of Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil.
The mean values of the mesiodistal crown dimension as well as the enamel thickness observed for the maxillary first bicuspids are shown in Table 1.
In the present study, histological data are provided pertaining to the proximal enamel thickness, and to the mesiodistal crown width of maxillary first bicuspids. As shown in Table 1, proximal enamel thickness mean values ranged from 1.08 mm to 1.29 mm.
