Courbes de Wilson : évaluation d'une nouvelle méthode de mesure passant par les axes dentaires

Abstract : Wilson’s curves are frontal, generally with superior concavity curves that bring together the tops of the vestibular and lingual cusps of two homologous teeth. To date, few variability studies have been conducted on Wilson’s curves, and even less considering the occurrence of teeth’s abrasion. We have therefore decided to start from the frontal convergence of dental axis passing through the first third/second third apical end of each dental root and running back to the center of each dental crown. Using the metrical and angular values measured on the 3D images of digitized mandibles, the objectives of this work are to propose a new method of measuring Wilson’s Curves removing the dental cusps from consideration (thus removing the impact of occlusal wear) and to compare the results with those of a conventional measurement method. The first section includes the definitions of the different curves in the three dimensions of space, an anatomical summary as well as the objectives of the study. The second section covers the materials and methods used for the study. The third section details the obtained results. The fourth and final section expounds the discussion.
