• Rodents
  • The incisors of Rodents are as a rule in each jaw a single pair of long and strong teeth, which grow from persistent pulps, and grow to a very great length, extending back within the jaw to near the hinder part of the skull. (wikisource.org)
  • The incisors of rodents grow throughout life and are worn by gnawing. (wikipedia.org)
  • lingual
  • Shovel-shaped incisors (or, more simply, shovel incisors) are incisors whose lingual surfaces are scooped as a consequence of lingual marginal ridges, crown curvature or basal tubercles, either alone or in combination. (wikipedia.org)
  • cusps
  • Many primitive, non-artiodactyl features retained: collarbone, unfused ulna, primitive femur, unfused foot bones with all 5 toes, could still spread hind limb out to the side, very primitive skull & teeth (all teeth present, no gaps, simple cusps). (talkorigins.org)
  • Plesiadapis tricuspidens, the type specimen, is named after the three cusps present on its upper incisors. (wikipedia.org)
  • populations
  • When present, shovel-shaped incisors can indicate correlation among populations and are considered to be one of the non-metric traits in osteology. (wikipedia.org)
  • But in 2002, Alan Templeton published a genetic analysis involving other loci in the genome as well, and this showed that some variants that are present in modern populations existed already in Asia hundreds of thousands of years ago. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • the only other sigmodontines present are several species of cotton rats (Sigmodon) in the southern half of the country. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • Patients with dentoskeletal deformities require buccolingual movements of incisors for surgical treatment (decompensation) or comprehensive orthodontics (compensation). (hindawi.com)
  • fossil
  • The porcupine was thought to have been introduced to Italy by the Romans, but fossil and subfossil remains suggest it was possibly present in Europe in the Upper Pleistocene. (wikipedia.org)
  • Oral
  • Other symptoms that occur in JEB: Corneal lesions Dental dysplasia Depression Oral ulcers Suppressed appetite Incisors present at birth Biopsies of the skin may be performed to identify the cleavage that takes place at the dermal-epidermal junction. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • The city was not destroyed by the 1610 quake, however due to the damage caused to the infrastructure and the seismic activity, the settlers held a referendum and decided to relocate the city to its present location, about 20 miles to the west. (wikipedia.org)
  • food
  • When the bacteria present in the mouth increase substantially in number, they act upon the food particles present between teeth and decompose them, producing foul-smelling gases, which cause the foul odour. (tripod.com)
  • In humans, the incisors serve to cut off pieces of food, as well as in the grip of other food items. (wikipedia.org)
  • second
  • a fluid pressure source attached in fluid communication with said balloon for inflation of said balloon in said chamber between a first position wherein said blades are withdrawn into said housing for use of said device as a dilator and a second position wherein said blades extend through said slits of said housing for use of said device as an incisor. (google.co.uk)
  • means attached to said balloon for inflation of said balloon between a first position wherein said blades are withdrawn into said dilating means for use of said device as a dilator and a second position wherein said blades extend from said dilating means for use of said device as an incisor.
