Therefore, the aim of this study was to establish morphometric characteristics of the buccal cortical bone (BCB) thickness of maxillary
premolars and its relation to maxillary
sinus floor through CBCT.
Hence, it was considered worthwhile to examine the effects of simultaneous implementation of SARME and intermaxillary Class III elastics on maxillary
expansion and advancement.
Generally, the incidence of palatogingival grooves ranges from 2.8% to 8.5% in extracted maxillary
lateral incisors.5,6 In clinical examination studies, the prevalence rate has been reported in range from 10% to 18.1%.1,7
Dentigerous cysts in the maxillary
sinus are easy to detect radiographically due to their opacity.
Conclusion: Ultrasonography had low sensitivity but high specificity in diagnosis of maxillary
Intraoral examination revealed a swelling about 4 cm x 4 cm in the maxillary
anterior labial vestibule which extended from the maxillary
left canine to the maxillary
right canine region [Figure 1].
After both techniques had been completed, a fourth veterinarian performed the dissections on each side of the head to allow visualization of the pterygopalatine fossa and the maxillary
For optimal patient management, attaining adequate anaesthesia is a prerequisite in many dental treatments.1 Extraction of maxillary
teeth is among commonly performed procedures in oral surgery.
Conclusion: Vertucci's type I was the most common canal configuration for maxillary
first and second premolars and there was no gender-based difference for root canal morphology of maxillary
As examples, single-rooted maxillary
right second premolars with type IV canals are categorized as [.sup.1][15.sup.2] (Figure 2a), whilst double-rooted maxillary
right first premolars with single canals in each of buccal (B) and palatal (P) roots are categorised as [.sup.2]14[B.sup.1][P.sup.1] (Figure 2b), clearly identifying the difference.
Between October 2012 and November 2013, three patients with maxillary
defects following resection of malignant tumor were recruited.
Overall, 57.9% of maxillary
first premolars from male patients were single rooted, and the remaining were two rooted (40.3%) or three rooted (1.8%); on the other hand, 70.2% of female patients presented single-rooted teeth, whereas the remaining presented two-rooted teeth.
