Assessment of Condylar Shape through Digital Panoramic Radiograph among Nepalese Population: A Proposal for Classification

Six different types of condyle shapes were noted: type I, oval; type II, flat; type III, diamond; type IV, mixed; type V, bifid; and type VI, crooked finger among the study population of Lalitpur.

Morphometric anlaysis of mandibular coronoid, condyle and sigmoid shape using panoromic view for personal identification in south Indian population

Sexual dimorphism is observed in the shape of the mandible due to masticatory activity at the point of insertion of temporalis muscle, biting force, hormones, and various genetic reasons.

Radiographic features of cleidocranial dysplasia on panoramic radiographs

The presence of numerous supernumerary teeth and impacted teeth, especially in the anterior and premolar regions, and the characteristic shapes of the ramus, condyle, and coronoid process on panoramic radiographs may help to diagnose CCD.

A Panoramic Study of the Morphology of Mandibular Condyle in a Sample of Population from Basrah City

Oval shape was the most common in all age groups in males and females, and more studies on Iraqi population evaluating mandibular condyle are needed to provide standardized values for mandIBular anatomical parts.

Morphological variations of condylar process and sigmoid notch using Orthopantomograms in Western part of Maharashtra population

Variation in morphological shapes of condylar process and sigmoid notch pertaining to Western part of Maharashtra population showed variation in detection of gender and diagnosis of pathologies in those regions.



Anatomical Study of Various Shapes of Mandibular Coronoid Process in Relation to Gender &Age .

The aim of this study was to observe the gender wise and age wise variation in the shape of coronoid process and this comparative study will be beneficial for the Anthropologists, Forensic scientists and Reconive surgeons.


Triangular shape of coronoid process is the most common presentation unilaterally and bilaterally in south indian population.

Morphology of Coronoid Process and Sigmoid Notch in Orthopantomograms of South Indian population

A multicentric study involving various ethnic groups of larger sample size may be undertaken to analyze variations in the morphology of coronoid process and sigmoid notch in the residents of South India.

Morphological and Radiological Variations of Mandibular Condyles in Health and Diseases: A Systematic Review

The purpose of this review is to describe in detail about normal anatomical and morphological variations in condylar head, thus helping an investigator to distinguish between variations in form and pathologic condition.

Evaluation of Condylar Morphology using Panoramic Radiography in Normal Adult Population

It was showed that the oval shape is the most frequent shape found in the overall population and a significant association was found between intercondylar asymmetry and morphology with regards to temporomandibular joint pain.

Unleash the Unknown - Frontal Sinus and Nasal Septal Patterns in Personal Identification

Postero anterior cephalograms used in the present study have succeeded to some extent to establish a fact that there exists a variation in the arrangement of frontal sinus and nasal septum pattern and these features are unique to every individual and ultimately this can aid in human identification.

Variations in the Shape of the Coronoid Process in the Adult Human Mandible

The shape of the coronoid processes of both sides of 157 dry adult human mandibles, 100 males and 57 females of Indian origin, were studied in order to classify the variations and the incidence of the rounded type was almost equal in male and female mandibles.

Mandibular condyle morphology on panoramic radiographs of asymptomatic temporomandibular joints

This work aimed to assess the frequency of different shapes of the mandibular condyle on panoramic radiographs of subjects without TMJ symptomatology and to correlate morphology with age and gender, as well as evaluate bilateral occurrence of same shape within each subject.
