Mathematical expressions describing the average form and size of the dentition and the mandible are presented. These expressions should be of value in applications of panoramic radiography when reference to an average standard jaw form is of interest. Data were collected from axial radiographs of 35 males and 35 females of three ethnic groups: Mexican-Americans, black Americans and American and Scandinavian Caucasians. Curves were traced on the axial radiographs representing the dentition and… CONTINUE READING
