Radiographic assessment of mandibular first bicuspids estimated enamel thickness for mesial and distal surfaces at 0.99 mm and 1.07 mm, respectively.
Based on Table 1, the enamel reduction could be slightly more pronounced on the distal surfaces.
OF ADJACENT SECOND MOLAR IN MARGINAL VERSUS PARAMARGINAL FLAP
* Class I: The cusp tip of the maxillary primary canine tooth is in the same vertical plane as the distal surface
of the mandibular primary ca-nine.
Some important otolith morphology features such as otolith and sulcus acusticus shapes, proximal and distal surfaces
, anterior and posterior regions were determinate for left and right sagittal otoliths of the sharpsnout seabream and their general morphology were shown (Table III).
The cavities situated at the distal surfaces
were etched for 30 seconds using ortho-phosphoric acid gel at 35 % and rinsed for 30 seconds with 5cc of distilled water.
Lesions on the occlusal, buccal, palatal/lingual, mesial and distal surfaces
were recorded separately.
cor on the proximal (1527), medial (1987), and distal (103) surfaces of the inside of the gills does not differ from the totals for the proximal, medial, and distal surfaces
of the outside ([[Chi].sup.2] = 5.5, df = 4, P [is less than] .05).
The contact points of interest were on the distal surfaces
of the first primary molars, the mesial surfaces of the second primary molars and the distal surfaces
of second primary molars, only if the first permanent molar was present.
This occurred even though the remaining marginal ridge was not adjacent to the cusp under load Therefore, with regard to loss of marginal ridge in both the mesial and distal surfaces
in 3-surface cavities, this group showed lower resistance to fracture than the 2-surface cavities.
Although, some measurement errors may associate with the positioning of the calipers on the mesial and distal surfaces
of the teeth, this method is certainly more reliable than manual measurements.
