Mesial root is broader faciolingually and longer than distal root, so we cannot see distal root from mesial view. A two-cusp form of the mandibular second premolar also develops from just four lobes. The slopes of the mesial and distal cusp ridges are about equal in length. Disto Buccal Triangular Ridge Crest. The facial outline is convex with the crest of contour located within the cervical third of the crown. In the maxillary first premolar, the occlusal fissure extends across the mesial marginal ridge onto the mesial crown surface.
The mandibular crown is considerably longer than the mandibular incisor crown. Concave lingual fossa can be seen incisal to cingulum. The maxillary first bicuspid Figure is the fourth tooth from the median line in the maxillary arch. Marginal ridges are those rounded borders of the enamel that form the mesial and distal margins of the occlusal surfaces of premolars and molars and the mesial and distal margins of the lingual surfaces of the incisors and canines Figures , A, and The facial ridge is prominent, and the surface is convex. Labial outline is broader less convex than lingual. The buccal cusp of a second premolar is shorter than the buccal cusp of a first premolar, and the lingual cusp is almost as long; thus the buccal and lingual cusps are nearly the same length.

The infuence of lip thickness and strain on upper lip response to incisor retraction. The mesial and distal marginal ridges prominent, and a strong lingual ridge runs from the tip of the cusp to the cingulum. Distal Marginal Ridge First molar is larger than second. Kits that contain these tests are commercially available. The mean age was 15 years ranging from 11 to 18 years of age , with 31 boys and 56 girls. The mesial ridge may even have a slight indentation at the junction of the mesial and middle lobes.
Even when only one root is present, two pulp canals can usually be found. The size of both these bony crests has an allometrically positive correlation with their body size. A developmental groove is a shallow groove or line between the primary parts of the crown or root. The fibers act as shock absorbers to cushion the force of chewing impacts. A, Mesiodistal section, buccal view; B, cross section, occlusal view; C, buccolingual section, distal view. Buccal height of contour is in the cervical third. According to Burstone 9 , support for the inferior incisors and extrusion of superior incisors project the lower lip the same way a flaccid lower lip or an abnormal lip morphology affect the lower lip inclination.
