Aim: The purpose of this study was to use cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans to examine the configurational interactions between the maxillary incisors and the incisive canal in the front region of the maxillary alveolar bone in patients undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Methods and materials: 186 patients who required CBCT for diagnosis and treatment planning among those between the ages of 18 and 39 who sought orthodontic treatment were chosen. The maxillary and mandibular dentoalveolar regions of each patient were imaged using CBCT technology as part of the pre-treatment examination. L stands for the incisive canal's length, while θ1, θ2, and θ3 represent the angles formed, respectively, by the palatal plane and the axis of the maxillary alveolar border, the incisive canal, and the left central incisor of the maxilla.
Results: The mean values of θ1 in male was 109.5 ± 7.8 degrees while it was 109.4 ± 7.9 degrees in females. The difference in findings between male and female was statistically non-significant (p=0.22). The mean values of θ2 in male was 106.6 ± 9.7 degrees while it was 110.7 ± 8.1 degrees in females. The difference in findings between male and female was statistically significant (p=0.01). The mean values of θ3 in male was 113.2 ± 8.8 degrees while it was 113.3 ± 11.4 degrees in females. The difference in findings between male and female was statistically non-significant (p=0.10). The mean values of D in male was 5.6 ± 2.3 mm while it was 5.1 ± 1.5 mm in females.
Conclusion: Anatomical variations in the maxillary alveolar bone's anterior region have produced morphometric data that may be helpful for orthodontic treatment planning in patients who need to significantly correct their maxillary incisal inclination or root position, or in patients who need to have implants placed in the anterior region.
