Charting and Insuran

Angle's classification System developed by Dr. Edward H. ANGLE to describe and classify occlusion and malocclusion.
Anterior Toward the FRONT
Apical third Division of the root nearest the tip of the root
Buccal Surface Tooth surface closest to the inner cheek
Buccolingual division Lengthwise division of the crown in a labial or BUCCALINGUAL direction, consisting of the facial or buccal/labial third, middle third , and lingual third.
Centric occlusion Maximum contact between the occluding surfaces of the maxillary and mandibular teeth
Concave Curved INWARD
Curve of Spee CURVATURE formed by the maxillary and mandibular arches in occlusion
Curve of Wilson Cross-arch curvature of occlusal plane
Convex Curved OUTWARD
Contact area Area of the MESIAL or DISTAL surface of a tooth that TOUCHES the adjacent tooth in the same arch.
Deciduous Pertaining to first dentition of 20 teeth, often called "BABY TEETH" or primary teeth
Dentition NATURAL teeth in the dental arch
Distal surface Surface of tooth DISTANT from the midline
Distoclusion A class II malocclusion in which the mesibuccal cusp of the maxillary first molar occludes (by more than the width of a premolar) mesial to the mesiobuccal groove of the mandibular first molar.
Embrasure TRIANGULAR space in a gingival direction between the proximal surfaces of two adjoining teeth in contact
Facial surface Tooth surface closest to the face. Facial surfaces closest to the lips are called labial surfaces, and facial surfaces clostest to the inner cheek are called buccal surfaces; therefore, the term facial can be substituted for labial and buccal andVICEVERSA
Functional occlusion Contact of the teeth during BITING and CHEWING movements
Incisal surface CHEWING SURFACE of ANTERIOR teeth
Interproximal space The AREA BETWEEN adjacent tooth surfaces
Labial surface Facial surface CLOSEST TO THE LIPS
Labioversion The inclination of the teeth that extent facially beyond the normal OVERLAP of the incisal edge of the maxillary incisors over the mandibular incisors.
Line angle JUNCTION of two walls in a cavity preparation
Lingual surface SURFACE of mandibular and maxillary teeth closest to the tongue; also called PALATAL SURFACE
Linguoversion Position in which the maxillary incisors are behind the mandubular incisors
Maloccusion OCCLUSION that is DEVIATED from a class I normal occlusion
Mandibular arch The LOWER JAW
Masticatory surface The CHEWING SURFACE of the teeth
Maxillary arch UPPER JAW
Mesial Surface Surface of the tooth toward the MIDLINE
Mesioclusion Term used for CLASS III malocclusion
Mesiodistal division Lengthwise division of the crown in a MESIODISTAL (FRONT-TO-BACK) direction, consisting of the mesial third, middle third, and distal third
Middle third Division of the root in the MIDDLE
Mixed dentition A MIXTURE of permanent teeth and primary teeth that occurs until all primary teeth have been lost, usually between the ages of 6 AND 12
Neutroclusion An ideal mesiodistal relationship between the JAWS and the dental ARCHES
Occlusal surface CHEWING SURFACE of POSTERIOR teeth
Occlusion The natural contact of the maxillary and mandibular teeth in all positions
Occlusocervical division CROSSWISE division of the crown that is parallel to the occlusal or incisal surface; consisting of the occlusal third, middle third, and cervical third
Palatal Surface LINGUAL surface of MAXILLARY teeth
Point angle ANGLE formed by the junction of THREE SURFACES
Posterior TOWARD the BACK
Primary dentition The first set of 20 PRIMARY teeth
Proximal surfaces The surfaces NEXT TO EACH OTHER when teeth are adjacent in the arch
Quadrant One QUARTER of the dentition
Sextant One SIXTH of the dentition
Succedaneous Permanent teeth that REPLACE primary teeth
Bicanineate A TWO-CUSP type of mandubular second premolar
Bifurcated Divided in TWO
Bifurcation Arean in which TWO ROOTS divide
Canine eminence External VERTICAL BONY RIDGE on the libial surface of the CANINES
Central groove Most prominent developmental GROOVE on the POSTERIOR TEETH
Cingulum RAISED, ROUNDED area on the cervical third of the lingual surface
Cusp Major elevation on the MASTICATORY surfaces of canines and posterior teeth
Cusp of Carabelli The FIFTH supplemental CUSP found lingual to the mesiolingual cusp
Diastema A space between two teeth
Fossa WIDE, shallow depression on the lingual surfaces of anterior teeth
Furcation Area between TWO OR MORE ROOT branches
Imbrincation SLIGHT RIDGES that run mesiodistally in the cervical third of the teeth
Incisal edge RIDGE on permanent incisors that appears flattened on labial, lingual, or INCISAL view after tooth eruption
Inclined cuspal planes SLOPING AREAS between the cusp ridges
Mamelon ROUNDED ENAMEL extension on the incisal ridges of incisors
Marginal groove A developmental groove that CROSSES a marginal ridge and serves as a SPILLWAY, allowing food to escape during masticaion
Marginal ridge ROUNDED, RAISED border on teh mesial and distal portions of the lingual surfaces of anterior teeth and the occlusal table of posterior teeth
Molars Teeth located in the posterior aspect of the upper and lower jaws
Morphology STUDY of form and shape, as of the teeth
Nonsuccedaneous Pertaining to a permanent tooth that DOES NOT REPLACE a primary tooth
Pegged laterals Incisors with a POINTED or TAPERED shape
Trianglers grooves A developmental groove that separates a marginal ridge from the TRIANGULAR RIDGE OF A CUSP
Tricanineate A THREE-CUSP type of mandibular second premolar
Trifurcation Are in which THREE ROOTS DIVIDE
Detection Act or process of discovering tooth IMPERFECTIONS of decay
Extraoral OUTSIDE the oral cavity
Furcation Area between two or more ROOT BRANCHES
Intaoral WithIN the oral cavity
Mobility To have MOVEMENT
Morphologically, Morphology Branch of BIOLOGY that deals with form and structure
Palpation Touching or feeling for ABNORMALITIES within soft tissue
Probing Use of a SLENDER, FLEXIBLE instrument to explore and measure the periodontal pocket
Restoration The use of dental material to RESTORE a tooth or teeth to a function permanent unit
Symmetric BALANCED or even on both sides
