- adjective Of, relating to, or being the cutting edge of an incisor or canine tooth.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I'm thinking along the lines of an envelope, soft tissue wedge removal and fluid drainage, just enough to expose about the incisal quarter of each.
Basically, what are the soft tissue objectives in relation to the incisal edges of the centrals.
I use an electrosurge although I sometimes use a scalpel and remove some of the tissue on the incisal edge.
The most frequently affected surface was the incisal or occlusal edge (43.2%).
In canines and molars, this line is present closer to the incisal/occlusal part of the enamel, with only a small portion of prenatally formed enamel present
The most common areas to be wrapped are the posterior posts and the incisal pins.
