Abstract

This study was aimed to help the construction of naturally dental prosthesis by investigation of the factors affecting on the attrition position and attrition angle of maxillary canines. Therefore 163 complete cast of maxillary and mandibular extracted from the student of K. college were subjected for this study, and result through the study are as follows. 1. None attrite rate of the maxillary canine was 7%, of examined teeth. 2. Throughout mesiodistal attrition of 1) Throughout mesiodistal attrition area of the maxillary canines showed that mesial area and mid area of cusp was more frequence in attrition than distal area of it. 2) Sex, dental arch type, vertical overlap, horizontal overlap, did not affect significantly to throughtout mesiodistal attrition statistically 3. Througout labiolingual attrition area 1) Throughout labiolingual attrition area of the maxillary canines showed that attrition of the from lingual to labioncisal edge was more frequence than it of linguoincisal edge 2) It showed that attrition of the from lingual to labioincisal edge was more frequence when the length of horizontal overlap is shorter, by horizontal overlap 3) The attrition of the from lingual to labioincisal edge in maxillary left canines showed that male was more frequence in attrition than female. 4) Dental arch type, vertical overlap, did not affect signioficantly to labiolingual attrition, statistically. 4. Attrition angle 1) It showed that average attrition angle of the maxillary right canines were $19{\pm}11.02$ dagree, and it of left canines were $18{\pm}11.83$ degree. 2) It showed that famale have a bigger attrition angle than male, by sex. 3) It showed that attrition angle was bigger when the length of horizontal ovelap is bigger, by horizontal overlap.
