Anatomical Features of Posterior Maxillary Teeth for the Positioning of Mini-screws in Beagle Dogs

The study aims to obtain accurate anatomical data on the posterior maxillary teeth in beagle dogs, the present study used solid samples for maxillary bone measurements to identify a suitable implantation point(s) for MSIs, as well as provide a simple and feasible method for establishing MSI animal models.


Objective: To investigate the anatomical morphology of the posterior maxillary teeth in beagle dogs to provide measurements for the positioning of mini-screw implants in the root furcation area.

Methods: The general conditions of the posterior maxillary teeth from 15 beagle dogs were observed. Afterwards, anatomical measurements of the related root furcation area were conducted using landmarks.
