On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about the supporting bone!
“So when we see the meeting of the cribriform plate and the buccal and lingual cortical plates, that’s where, of course, we see that beautiful lamina dura radiographically, the buccal and lingual cortical plates will vary in thickness, but typically we do see that that cortical plate is thicker on the mandible than on the maxilla.”
“We talk about that compact bone being thicker on the mandible, but on the maxilla we see that the compact bone itself is actually thicker on the palatal surfaces than it is on buccal surfaces.”
