Characteristics of permanent teeth in persons with trisomy G

J Dent Res. 1976 Jul-Aug;55(4):633-8. doi: 10.1177/00220345760550041501.


Tooth size and morphology have been studied in 35 participants with trisomy G. The control material was obtained from 33 dental students. Special attention has been paid to the mean cusp pattern of the upper first and second molars. The classification matrix for the linear discriminant function analysis between participants with trisomy G and controls, based on five selected variables that determine the cusp pattern, showed three misclassifications.
