Pell and Gregory11 classified the depth of the impacted tooth by setting a relationship between the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) of third molar with the bone level.
CAL was measured from cementoenamel junction to the base of the gingival sulcus.
The foramina diameters and the distance of the foramen to the cementoenamel junction, and to the alveolar bone crest, were measured.
Sixty human maxillary canines with completely formed apices and a single canal without calcifications had the crowns removed at the cementoenamel junction to obtain a standardized root length of 19 mm for each tooth.
The radiographs were scanned to obtain digitalized images to measure the crestal bone level (CBL that is the distance from cementoenamel junction (CEJ) to the alveolar crest) on proximal surfaces using computerized software (Figure 3).
It has also been noted that the EH in most of the teeth occurred at a late developmental stage as evidenced from position on the crown from the cementoenamel junction (i.
Gingival recession, is defined as apical shift of gingival margin towards cementoenamel junction and consequently results in tooth root surface exposure.
For example, antemortem images must have open contacts, clear distinction of the cementoenamel junction, pulpal outline, root apex, differentiation of restorative materials, and pathology and disease to make acceptable identifications.
The periodontal parameters included the following assessments: (i) pocket depth: the distance of the free gingival margin to the base of the probable pocket, recorded to the nearest millimeter and (ii) gingival recession, the location of the free gingival margin in relation to the cementoenamel junction (positive if located apical to the cementoenamel junction and negative if located coronal to the cementoenamel junction).
The entire apparatus was placed in the water bath with the tooth being immersed only up to cementoenamel junction with the crown portion exposed to the external environment.
Each cavity was placed at two millimeters of the cementoenamel junction and presents the following dimensions:
