Measurement of the buccolingual
inclination of teeth: Manual technique vs 3-dimensional software.
The separating disc was used to section the roots vertically in a buccolingual
direction into two halves in order to expose the root-end fillings (Fig 3).
The teeth were radiographed in buccolingual
and mesiodistal views to visualize the AIRC.
Before the analysis, all teeth were radiographed in the buccolingual
and mesiodistal directions to confirm the presence of a single canal with no curvature.
Treatment of such patients starts with orthodontic repositioning of teeth in the correct mesiodistal, buccolingual
and apicocoronal positions to accommodate restorative management or opening or closure of spaces accordingly.
The symptoms included, tongue protrusion, drooling, inability to speak (characteristics of buccolingual
dyskinesia), up rolling of eyes and involuntary tremor like movements.
To confirm the completed fillings buccolingual
and mesiodistal radiographs were obtained.
Crown parts of selected teeth were separated from roots and sectioned in the buccolingual
The models must be drilled in the buccolingual
direction with the aid of a round bur mounted in a handpiece on the limited horizontal line near the midlines of the teeth.
They enable to make proper seize, position and buccolingual
angulation planning during the preoperative implant selection (9).
'Gingival biotype' is a term used to define buccolingual
