  10. From the Mesial view is the Incisal edge perpendicular along the root apex ?

    Which way does the incisal edge slope? Facially or Lingually
    No , it is lingual to the long axis of the tooth*

  11. Where is the HOC located looking from the distal side ?
    Incisal third
  12. From the incisal view of the Central Mandibular Incisor  which is wider , the M-D or the F-L ?

    From the incisal view of the Central Mandibular Incisor what is the shaped outline?

    are the M and D halves symmetrical ?

    Do you see more facial or lingual ?

    Is the Incisal edge perpendicular   
    to F-L bisector*?

    Diamond shaped


    More Facial than Lingual

  13. What does the central mandibular incisor root usually look like ?

    Does it ever present bifurcation?

    Is the root wider F-L or M-D ?
    Normally single and straight, has a Gradual taper to sharp apex


    F-L , but narrower M-D

    Is it very similar in form to mandibular central ?
    Universal #23 and #26

  15. Which DI angle is more severe between the Mandibular Central and Lateral Incisor ?

    Where are mesial and distal HOC's?
    Lateral Mandibular incisor is more angled

    At the incisal third, with D slightly more cervical
  16. Which way is the cingulum offset on the mandibular lateral incisor ?
    It is offset towards the distal marginal ridge

  17. from the incisal view of the mandibular lateral incisor , which way does the incisal edge curve ?

    How many facets of where does this tooth have ?
    The distal edge is pointed lingually as to help create and arch.The crown appears twisted on the root.

    Two facets of wear.
  18. Which tooth is this slightly wider, thicker. The mandibular central or lateral incisor ?
    Lateral Incisor
  19. How do you tell the difference between the central lateral mandibular incisors ?
    Look at the incisal view and look for the twisted crown (Lateral)

    Central has one wear facet and the laterla has two wear facets.

    Central is very symmetrical and the lateral has a large distal curve
