Our analysis of bending and stiffness data for incised lumber specimens showed that incision dimensions vary on the basis of incision density, incisor tooth length, and wood density (specific gravity [SG]).
These factors are applied to all sizes of structural lumber, and they can be applied to incision densities and incisor tooth lengths that are much more severe than those evaluated in this study.
The proportion of children with incisor tooth trauma was greater than for 15 year old adolescents without epilepsy, 13% [Ashley, 2001] but similar to a group of Nigerian epileptic children [Lynch et al.
The duration of operating times ranged from a median of 20.00 (inter-quartile range 10.00, 25.00) minutes for exposure of a labially-positioned, non-erupted permanent maxillary incisor tooth and apically repositioned flap (ARF) to 55.00 (inter-quartile range 45.00, 60.00) minutes for surgical removal of a supernumerary unit(s), incisor exposure and gold chain placement (Table 1).
The median time for the removal of a supernumerary unit, exposure of a non-erupted permanent maxillary incisor tooth and gold chain placement was significantly longer than for either supernumerary tooth removal (Mann Whitney U, W = 474.0, P = 0.001) and surgical removal of a canine (Mann Whitney U, W = 373.5, P = 0.006), premolar (Mann Whitney U, W = 166.0, P = 0.001) and molar unit (Mann Whitney U, W = 201.5, P = 0.006).
