1

What is the correct annotation for the mandibular canines?

22 and 27

2

When do the mandibular canines erupt?

9-10 years

3

When are the roots completed for the mandibular canines?

11-13 years

4

How would you describe the anatomy of the mesial and distal outlines (facial view)?

They follow a straight line below the contact.

5

Where are the mesial contacts located on the facial view of the mandibular canines?

At the incisal 1/3

6

Where is are the distal contacts located for the mandibular canines (facial view)?

At the junction of the incisal and middle 1/3.

7

How would you describe the relationship between the Distal cusp ridge and mesial cusp ridge?

The DCR is longer than the MCR.

8

How would you describe the CEJ from the facial view?

Slight arc

9

True or False; the root of the mandibular canine is pointed.

True

10

How would you describe the anatomy of the CEJ on the lingual view?

CEJ is off set to the distal and has less curve then the facial view.

11

Which direction (mesial or distal) is the cingulum of the mandibular canine?

Distal

12

From the mesial view how would you describe the location of the cusp tip?

Just lingual to the long axis.

13

How would you describe the labial outline of the mandibular canine (mesial view)?

Has a convex arch

14

How would you describe the lingual outline of the mandibular canine (mesial view)?

Flat to concave.

15

How would you describe the relationship of the CEJ from mesial to distal views?

Mesial is more curved then Distal.

16

Which contact on the mandibular canine (from mesial and distal views) is more cervical?

Distal contact

17

When comparing the mesial and distal views which root has the deeper concavity?

Distal

18

From the incisal view where is the cingulum located?

Off set to the distal

19

What is a unique root variation in the mandibular canines?

Bifurcation in the apical 1/3
