I am still a predent but this is my guess:diantist said:can any 1 plz help me to get hold of the concept of crown inclination.. i mean which tooth has least inclinatin,
which is straighter,
which is vertically inclined.... i am confused....
Actually, the maxillary central incisors have the greatest axial inclination/tilt in the entire maxillary arch. You're right about the mandibular molars, though.dat_student said:maxillary central incisors: very straight & vertical (compared to others)
(In general, anteriors are more vertically situated in the alveolar bone.)
mandibular molars are lingually tilted (usually 3rd mandibular molar is more titled than others because not much space in the back)
P.S. I've never had a dental morphology course. I hope I'm right
Thanks My mistake: My guess was based on root axis lines & alveolar bone. Oh well, hopefully some day I'll learn these thingsTypo said:Actually, the maxillary central incisors have the greatest axial inclination/tilt in the entire maxillary arch. You're right about the mandibular molars, though.
Shlo is right about the premolars - they've got the most vertical axial inclination. That's what the decks say, at least!
