reported that males have larger teeth than females and stated that buccolingual dimension is a good gender predictor than mesiodistal dimension.
a) Size of the tooth: In young individuals where skeletal and secondary sexual characters have not yet developed, teeth may be used for gender determination by measuring their mesiodistal and buccolingual dimensions.
This difference can be explained by the difference in the buccolingual dimension between primary and permanent canines, as exfoliation of the primary canines occurred in two patients of the EG.
The least difference was observed in the buccolingual dimension of the mandibular central incisor where the malocclusion group had only 0.
The dimensions that were significantly different between the two groups were the buccolingual dimension of maxillary lateral incisor, first molar, mandibular canine and mandibular 2nd premolar, mesiodistal and buccolingual dimension of maxillary canine, 2nd premolar and mandibular central incisor and the mesiodistal dimension of maxillary first premolar and mandibular lateral incisor.
6801mm greater in dimension in the malocclusion group compared to the normal group, and the least difference was observed in the buccolingual dimension of the mandibular central incisor where the malocclusion group had only 0.
The study found that average tooth size was significantly larger in the sample with malocclusions than those who had a normal occlusion; both mesiodistal and buccolingual crown dimensions were characteristically larger in the sample with crowding; and the teeth that were significantly larger in the malocclusion group were the buccolingual dimension of maxillary lateral incisor, first molar, mandibular canine and mandibular 2nd premolar, Mesiodistal and buccolingual dimension of maxillary canine, 2nd premolar and mandibular central incisor and the mesiodistal dimension of maxillary first premolar and mandibular lateral incisor.
Table 1 depicts the mean values, standard deviations and tests between the subjects as influencing the buccolingual dimension.
When all the variables were analyzed together for buccolingual dimension, there were appreciable differences in the mean values between metal and plastic trays when rigid impression material was used and whether working or opposite side was poured first.
However, Statistical analysis of the combined variables for buccolingual dimension (i.
However, they only studied the buccolingual dimension of the dies and only poured the working side of the impression.
Statistical analysis showed that there was significant difference between rigid and regular body impression material when buccolingual dimensions were measured (regular body impression material was more accurate, P=0.
