Abstract

Aim: To measure the depth of the palate for completely edentulous patients and relate this parameter to the type of reflection of the soft palate. Materials and methods: Fixed reference point was determinedin the hard palate of a hundred upper edentulous casts made by pouring impressions of completely edentulous patients attending the prosthodontic clinic in College of Dentistry, University of Mosul.This reference point was determined by drawing two lines, the first line from the center of incisive papilla to the fovea palatinae, and the second line crossing the first line exactly in its middle. Thecrossing point of these two lines was considered the point of measurement. A depth measuring digital vernia (Lezaco art, 2406 China) measuring to the nearest of 0.01 mm recorded the measurement. Thecurvature of soft palate was determined by measuring the angle formed by the highest point of the palate and a point one centimeter posterior to fovea palatinae. Results: The results showed that 65% of the measurements of the palatal depth fall in the moderate category of palatal depth and 79% of soft palate reflections were of gradual type. Conclusion: There is an acceptable success rate of completedenture could be achieved in cases of moderate palatal depth with gradual reflection of soft palate

Abstract

Background Cone Beam Computed Tomography system of 3D digital acquisition can be used in various dental sections such as orthodontics, endodontic, implantology, surgery and oral diagnosis. Linear and angular measurements on Cone Beam Computed Tomography images are accurate, precise and can be used to assess the exact position of displaced canines. Objectives It is to investigate with cone beam computed tomography the correlation between the palatal depth, width and the upper canine impaction. Materials and methods The study sample consists of 57 CBCT images of 35 patients referred to Al- Shifaa private hospital with impacted maxillary canines and 22 control patients with fully erupted canines. These were evaluated by volumetric 3D imaging to accurately localize the normal or impacted canines. The palatal depth and width of the impacted canine and control cases were measured and compared.Results The statistical descriptive analysis showed no significant difference in palatal width measurements between the control and impacted canine groups. On the other hand, the LSD test showed a significant difference in the mean of palatal depth between the control cases and impacted canine cases. Conclusions Marked decreased palatal depth in impaction cases could be a factor in causing maxillary canine impaction
