    Background: The literature considers primary failure of eruption (PFE) and infra-occlusion as two separate clinical entities and there are no clearly identified signs and symptoms that aid to facilitate a definitive diagnosis between these two conditions. Therefore, it is the purpose of this...

    Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine inter-relations between infraocdusion of primary mandibular molars, tipping of adjacent teeth, and alveolar bone height of infraocduded teeth. Methods: A total of 402 periapical radiogrcphs of infrooccluded primary mandibular molars were...

    AIM: The construction of a flat occlusal plane or one showing a haphazard curvature does not correspond to the concept of "best practice" in restorative dentistry. Unlike a flat reconstruction, a correct occlusal curvature allows mandibular translation without occlusal interferences in the...
