  1. Anterior Teeth:
    • Incisors and Canines
    • Incisal edge or one cusp
    • Cingulum and lingual fossa(e)
    • Marginal ridges parallel long axis
    • Facial and lingual heights of contour in cervical third
  2. General Canine Features
    • Single cusp (cuspid)
    • Favorable crown to root ratio
    • Transitional form: mesial (anterior) and distal (posterior)
    • Longevity
  3. Canine Facial Surfaces
    • Sharp cusp tip
    • Labial ridge
    • Dev Depressions
    • Mesial and distal cusp slopes or ridges
    • Image Upload
  4. Canine Lingual Surfaces
    • Lingual ridge
    • Lingual fossae
    • Marginal ridges
    • Cingulum
    • Image Upload
  5. Maxillary Canine
    • Longest root
    • Bulky crown with prominent ridges
    • Well-developed lingual anatomy
    • Asymmetry: mesial aspect like anterior tooth; distal is more like a posterior tooth
    • Image Upload
  6. Mandibular Canine
    • Long, narrow crown with smooth lingual surface
    • Mesial cusp ridge much shorter than distal cusp ridge
    • Incisocervical crown length longer than for maxillary canine
    • Image Upload
  7. What is the only dimension of the mandibular canine that is greater than that of the maxillary canine?
    Image Upload
  8. Intercuspal Position (ICP)
    • Most interdigitated (closed) position of maxillary and mandibular teeth
    • �Close on your back teeth�.
    • Different occlusal relationships
    • Protrusive (Forward) Movement
    • Lateral Movement from ICP
    • Functional Canine Wear
  9. Arch Form Relationships and Considerations
    • Proximal contacts
    • Location
    • Size
    • CEJ curvature
    • Marginal ridge height
    • Embrasure symmetry
  10. Location of Proximal Contacts
    • Proximal contacts move from incisal to middle third
    • in progression from midline to distal of the canine.
  11. Pattern of CEJ Curvature
    • Describe the change from anterior to posterior
    • Image Upload.
  12. Marginal Ridge Height
    • What is the clinical consequence when adjacent
    • marignal ridges are not the same height?
  13. Symmetry of Embrasures
    • The occlusal/incisal aspect is best for viewing buccal/facial and lingual embrasures.
    • Image Upload
    • The facial aspect is best for viewing the occlusal/incisal and cervical embrasures.
    • Image Upload
