Abstract

Background: Using the CBCT, this technique has the ability to identify the proper dimensions of the
mesiodistal width of the tooth and other clearing techniques that in the past have been of higher value to
the other conventional techniques that can be implemented to give a three-dimensional perspective of the
complete morphological details. With this, analysing the mesiodistal width of mandibular central incisors
between male and female based on CBCT can be accomplished.
Methods: One hundred Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) images from different patients are
selected randomly from Department of Oral Radiology of Saveetha Dental College and Hospital, India.
All the CBCT images of patients are examined for the inclusion criterias in the mesiodistal width of the
mandibular incisors between different genders. All mesiodistal width of mandibular central incisors between
different genders are investigated and compared.
Conclusion:When both the genders were compared in terms of the number of canals, there was a significant
difference seen (p-value: 0.000002208). With the p-value calculated, it was found that there was a significant
difference between the genders in terms of the distance between the occlusal pit to the pulp chamber (p-value:
<0.0000001). Overall, there is no significant difference between the two genders at the level of the cervical
third (p-value: 0.6554).
