Root surface measurements of mandibular molars using stereophotogrammetry.


Journal Article

Ten mandibular first molars were hemisected and the root surface of each root was measured using stereophotogrammetry and computer analysis. In each tooth the mesial root was determined to have a greater surface area than the distal root. This difference was statistically significant. The fact that the mesial root has the larger surface area must be a consideration when hemisection is planned.
