Objective: To explore differences in mesio-distal and bucco-lingual crown width of naturally fully erupted permanent maxillary lateral incisors and 1st premolars among patients with and without buccal canine displacement.
Study Design: Cross-sectional study
Place and Duration of Study: This study was conducted at the Orthodontic department at Islam Dental College, Sialkot for a period of 09 months from Jan to September 2020.
Materials and Methods: Pre-treatment casts were studied for the pervasiveness of maxillary anomalous lateral incisors, mesio-distal (MD) and bucco-lingual (BL) widths of Maxillary permanent teeth, i.e., Buccally displaced Canines, Maxillary Lateral Incisor and Maxillary 1st Pre-Molar were recorded using digital caliper on right and
Results: Larger than normal Mesio-Distal and Bucco-Lingual dimensions were observed for the Lateral Incisors and the 1st Pre-Molar while smaller than average Mesio-Distal dimensions were observed for the Canines on the affected sides. Females were more affected
Conclusion: The results of our study concluded a highly significant result for Mesio-Distal and Bucco-Lingual dimensions of Lateral Incisors and 1st Premolar in patients with Buccally Displaced Canines on the affected side.
Key Words: Bucally displaced Canine (BDC), Maxillary Lateral Incisors (MLI) morphology, Maxillary 1st Premolar (M1stPM) morphology.
