An examination of proportional root lengths of the mandibular canine and premolars near the time of eruption.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION To make treatments more efficient, orthodontists require a more precise means of estimating tooth eruption. The purpose of this article was to extend the information derived from dental staging techniques by incorporating direct measurements of root lengths for 3 mandibular teeth: the canine and the 2 premolars.
