(33) The shaping and cleaning of oval-shaped canals represent a challenge because these root canals tend to have a greater buccolingual dimension and endodontic instruments tend to remain at the center of the canal.
Lakhanpal et al., reported that males have larger teeth than females and stated that buccolingual dimension is a good gender predictor than mesiodistal dimension.
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 0.080.5247mm larger mandibular central incisors in the buccolingual dimension compared to the normal group.
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.
The greatest significant difference was observed in the mesiodistal dimension of maxillary 2nd premolar, which was 0.9mm0.6801mm 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 0.08mm0.5247mm larger mandibular central incisors in the buccolingual dimension compared to the normal group.
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.
However, Statistical analysis of the combined variables for buccolingual dimension (i.e., tray, viscosity and order of pouring the cast) showed significant difference (i.e., P<0.05) with respect to:
However, they only studied the buccolingual dimension of the dies and only poured the working side of the impression.
