Abstract

The morphology of the deciduous teeth was investigated. The mean mesiodistal crown dimensions of the deciduous canine, first and second molars and the mean buccolingual crown dimensions of the deciduous second molars in both dental arches of boys were significantly larger than that of girls. The upper deciduous first molar of girls was slender buccolingually and the lower deciduous second molar of boys was slender mesiodistally.
