maxillary molars...

max 1st molar
#3 and 14 largest molar
first permanent tooth to errupt on max arch
5 cusps
how many lobes does max 1st molar have?
5 lobes according to five cusps
what are the five cusps?
ML, MF, DF, DL, carabelli
Between MF and DF cusp there is a
facial groove an dpit
what shape is max 1st molar?
trapezoidal, square or rhomboid shape
have a development buccal groove dividing into 2 symmetrical portions
buccal groove oringates at central pit and emerges from between
the two facial cusps
terminal of buccal groove is marked by
buccal pit
DL cusp is
sharp and less developed
From lingual view
ML longest than DL is shortest of all 4 cusps
DL groove & pit-divides tooth how many portions?
2 portions
Carabelli is
supplemental/accessory cusp, varies in size
cusp of carabelli groove
not preseint in all dentition
appear as a groove or cusp or may be absent
not major cusp
Maxillary 1st has
mesial crest is deeper
mesial concavity
DL are lower than table
Maxillary 1st molar-occlusion
grooves are M+D, marginal, triangular, DL, ML, Facial

central grooves runs MD direction between
the mesial pit and distal pit
DL groove extends onto, L surface & separates MI cupz from the DL cusp
ML groove separates teh cusp of carabelli on the occlusal surface
obblique ridge
separates the D fossa from central fossa
Each cusp has a triangular ridge
transverse ridge formed by
buccal triangular ridge of mesiolingual cusp and lingual triangular ridge of mesiobuccal cusp
carabelli-min or non functional cusp
oblique ridge=
only maxiiary molars
union of 2 ridges running obliquely across teh
occlusal surface
on the max 1st molar, oblique ridge is made up of
D ridge of ML cusp and the triangular ridge of DF cup
3 molar cusps form a triangule if lines are drown to connect their cusp tips
df mf dl
oblique ridge sepearates
D fossa and central fossa
2 or F side
1 root on L side
by size of root
lingual/palatal-curves in F largest, longests, strongest. has longitiudinal grooves,
MF curves to D and wider longer of the F roots
straight to D smallest
horns of max molar
3-4, lingual palatal, largest, oval to round, mf 1-3 canals rough. Df small round
facial cervical

#2 and #15

less distinct F groove no facial pit
no cups of carabelli
4 lobe=4 roomates
no fifth cusp
4 cus tp centered over lingual area
