Figure 1 The method used for expressing the inclination of the mandibular canine. The orthopantomogram is from a female (age unknown). The canine inclination is expressed as the angle between the canine axis and the vertical line (VER), which is the perpendicular line to the occlusal plane (OL) through the mental spine (ms). OL: the line connecting the mesial cusps of the right and left lower first molar (27)
