Tapering And Modified Tapering Arrangements
Labial Aspect Incisal Aspect Discription
7.
Basic
Arrangement
Mould 42F illustrated
This Tapering arch converges to a point midline between the centrals. The case is developed to give the typical effect of the Tapering-type arrangement.
8.
Softened
Arrangement
Mould 44E illustrated
A long ratio tooth form is set in a typical Tapering alignment, with the overall effect of softness created by the rounded form of the laterals. Slight asymmetry with dominance on the left side has been introduced. The right side is slightly softened by the rotation distally of the lateral.
9.
Vigorous
Arrangement
Mould 43F Centrals and Laterals with Mould 42G canine illustrated
A slight departure from the typical Tapering alignment. This effect has been created by the outward rotation of both laterals at the distal, with slight spacing between the right central, lateral and canine. Larger canines are used for a more vigorous effect.
10.
Asymmetrical
Arrangement
Mould 45F illustrated
In this arrangement, the left side is dominant. This has been accomplished by rotation of the left lateral out at the distal. Each tooth is set to a different long axis, adding to the natural appearance of the arrangement.
11.
Crowded
Arrangement
Mould 42G illustrated
A typical crowded arrangement frequently found in the Tapering arch. The left central overlaps the right central, and the distal of the right central overlaps the mesial of the right lateral. The left lateral has been noticeably elevated.
12.
Spaced
Arrangement
Mould 42D illustrated
In the Tapering arch, spacing between the teeth will usually be found when the teeth are too small in relation to the size of the arch. To simulate this effect, spacing may be introduced to a variable degree between any or all teeth as indicated or desired.
