Morphological Changes In The Crown Of Mandibular Molars With An Additional Distolingual
120.280000 microns and lowest marginal gap was at Distolingual
(DL) point C i.e.
An external groove was observed in 41 cases (39.1%)--37 on the mesiolingual side (90.2 %), three on the distolingual
side (7.3%) and one on the lingual side (2.4%).
Meanwhile, PPD and CAL were measured on all six sites of the tooth namely mesiobuccal, midbuccal, distobuccal, mesiolingual, midlingual and distolingual
. All measurements were recorded in the periodontal chart.
Small amounts of wax were placed on the distobuccal and distolingual
line angles of the tooth in order to standardize the location of the tips and the lengths of both retentive arms (premolar: 8 mm; molar: 12 mm) and reciprocating arms.

root: a case report," Head and Face Medicine, vol.
Pocket depth and clinical attachment level (CAL) were measured for each tooth at 6 sites, namely, mesiobuccal, midbuccal, distobuccal, mesiolingual, midlingual, and distolingual
. Clinical attachment level (CAL) was determined by measuring the distance from the cement enamel junction (CEJ) to the gingival margin with a William's periodontal probe.
In 1844, Carabelli first mentioned an extra root on the distolingual
position of permanent mandibular first molar and termed radix entomolaris (RE).
In each subject, 6 sites were evaluated on each tooth present (distobuccal, midbuccal, mesiobuccal, distolingual
, midlingual, and mesiolingual).
After the measurement of LD level, probing pocket depth (PPD) and clinical attachment level (CAL) were determined at six sites (mesiobuccal, midbuccal, distobuccal, mesiolingual, midlingual, and distolingual
) on all teeth using a color-coded probe (CP-11 Color-Coded Probe, Hu-Friedy, Chicago, IL, USA) .
