  29. When do the permanent mandibular 1st molars erupt?
    • 10-12
    • 12-13
  30. What is the crown shape of the mandibular 1st premolars?
  31. the mandibular first premolar resembles a mandibular ___________ in many more ways than it does a mandibular ________
    • canine
    • 2nd premolar
  32. Which premolar only has one functional cusp? And which is it?
    • mandibular first premolar
    • buccal cusp
  33. Which tooth does the mandibular 1st premolar most resemble?
    mandibular canine
  34. Which cusp slope is shorter on the mandibular 1st molar?
  35. Which tooth am I describing; ML developmental groove and well-developmed marginal ridges, with a large buccal cusp and small afunctional lingual cusp
    mandibular 1st premolar
  36. Which margin is more rounded on the mandibular 1st premolar?
  37. true or false, the mandibular 1st premolar has a distal groove on it's root
  38. Which premolar would you see 'snake eyes' in?
    mandibular 1st premolar
  39. What is the eruption date for the mandibular 2nd premolars?
    • 11-12
    • 13-14
  40. How many cusps are seen in the mandibular 2nd premolars?
    there can be 2 or three
  41. What percentage for mandibular 2nd premolars have 3 cusps? And 2 cusps?
    • 3= 55%
    • 2= 45%
  42. What crown shape is the 3 cusp mandibular 2nd premolar?
  43. What crown shape is the 2 cusp form the mandibular 2nd premolar?
  44. In distinguishing left versus right with the 2 cusp type mandibular 2nd premolar, the lingual cusp shifts___________
  45. in distinguishing right from left in the 3 cusp type of the mandibular 2nd premolar, the___________cusp is larger, and it contains_______ ________ ________
    • mesiolingual
    • proximal root concavities
  46. which premolar is congenitally missing second only to maxillary lateral incisors and 3rd molars?
    mandibular 2nd premolars
  47. Which premolar has a Y-shaped groove pattern on it's occlusal table?
    The mandibular 2nd premolar with 3 cusps
  48. Which premolar has a lingual groove on its occlusal table?
    Y-shaped mandibular 2nd premolar
  49. Which premolar has a U or H-shaped groove pattern on its occlusal table?
    mandibular 2nd premolar with 2 cusps
  50. On which premolar is the central groove:
    V shaped
    Crescent shaped
    • mandibular 2nd - 3 cusps Y (with a straight lingual groove)
    • mandibular 2nd - 2 cusps U
    • mandibular 2nd - 2 cusps H
  51. What clinical consideration might occur to cause impaction of the 2nd mandibular premolar?
    premature loss of primary mandibular 2nd molar, causing mesial drift of permanent 1st molar
  52. Why is it hard for patients to clean the mandibular premolars?
    because they are in a difficult place for the brush to reach and the tongue gets in the way
