Developing and testing models of human tooth shape using dental radiographs
Prof H Liversidge, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Human teeth vary in shape. The dimensions and shape of teeth from dental radiographs has not been studied in detail. Knowledge of the variation in crown and root dimensions of the mature tooth helps to define abnormal teeth as well as abnormal tooth eruption.
