Brief Summary:
The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between the measurements of the specific points of the face (lower face height, midface height, the distance between zygomatic, pupillary distance,interalar distance, epicanthus distance, the distance between commissar) and the dimensions of the maxillary sixth molar tooth (mesiodistal distance, buccal palatal distance, root length, pulp volume).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Diagnostic Test: Facial Measurements and Tooth Size and Pulp Volume

Detailed Description:
Radiographic images of patients who have been indicated for cone-beam computed tomography for the upper jaw for various reasons (such as impacted teeth, sinusitis, skeletal anomalies) will be reviewed retrospectively. Facial measurements (lower face height, midface height, inter-zygomatic distance, inter-pupillary distance, interalar distance, epicanthus distance, the distance between commissures) of the patients who received cone beam computed tomography will be measured in the clinic. Mesiodistal distance, buccal palatal distance, root length, pulp volume of maxillary sixth tooth will be measured using cone beam computed tomography. The data obtained will be compared.

Intervention Details:
  • Diagnostic Test: Facial Measurements and Tooth Size and Pulp Volume
    Radiographic images of patients who have been indicated for cone-beam computed tomography for the upper jaw for various reasons (such as impacted teeth, sinusitis, skeletal anomalies) will be reviewed retrospectively. Facial measurements (lower face height, midface height, inter-zygomatic distance, inter-pupillary distance, inter alar distance, epicanthus distance, the distance between commissures) of the patients who received cone beam computed tomography will be measured in the clinic. Mesiodistal distance, buccal palatal distance, root length, pulp volume of maxillary sixth tooth will be measured using cone beam computed tomography. The data obtained will be compared.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Height of inferior face [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance between subnasal and gnathion

  2. Height of medium face [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance between glabella and subnasal

  3. bizygomatic distance [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance from the most lateral parts of the arch of the zygomas

  4. interpupillary distance [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance the center of the pupil of the right side to the center of the pupil of the left side

  5. interalar distance [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance from ala of one side to other

  6. Epicanthus distance [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance from inner palpebral fissures

  7. Commissural distance [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Distance from commissar of the lips

  8. Mesiobuccal root length [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    distance from enamel cement border of the tooth to the mesial root apex

  9. Distobuccal root length [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    distance from enamel cement border of the tooth to the distal root apex

  10. Palatal root length [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    distance from enamel cement border of the tooth to the palatal root apex

  11. Mesiodistal width [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Defined as the distance between two parallel planes, tangential to the most mesial and most distal points of the crown side

  12. Buccal palatal width [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    Defined as the maximum distance between two parallel planes, one tangential to the most palatal point of the crown side, and the other tangential to a point on the buccal crown side

  13. Inter first molar distance [ Time Frame: 5 minute ]
    The linear distance between right and left first molar teeth between the most convex palatal crown faces

  14. Pulp volume [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
