SIV with lateral process long and thin, without apical lobe (Pl), internal margin with short sparse hairs, apical area with long and simple hairs (P) (Fig.
The distance from the MC to the apical area in male patients was (M = 2.65 mm [+ or -] 0.89) and in female patients was (M = 5.4 mm [+ or -] 2.65) observing a significant statistical difference in the distance from the MC to the apical area by sex (P = 0.004).
2B): hyaline; light brown fumose in the apical area; forewing with basal cell opaque brown; brownish veins, darker in the apical area; the extremities of the veins marked with dark brown on both sides, with deep brown markings on the radial and radiomedial crossveins; ambient vein dark brown; apical area octoloculate.
In transverse section, each leaf and leaflet can be divided into 2 areas: the basal area, which consists mainly of large mucus cells and the apical area that contains a mixture of supporting cells, sensory cells, and small mucus-secreting cells having goblet appearance (Figs.
These depressions were free of white globules, but the surface ciliation was not different from that of the rest of the apical area (Figs.
The apical area is posteromedial to the carotid canal.
The apical extension of the junctional epithelium may result in the establishment or recurrence of the communication between the marginal periodontium and apical area, thus jeopardizing the healing outcome but also carrying the risk of gingival recession with aesthetic concern (3).
In recent advancement in terms of introduction of new materials, researchers have been experimenting with materials, capable of being applied permanently at the apical area of the root to estabilish an artificial apical barrier to reduce the process of treatment in one or two appointments.9Another alternative is to establish an artificial apical stop with mineral trioxide aggregate.10 MTA is a potential apical barrier material with excellent sealing properties, greater biocompatibility, low solubility, can be used safely when placed next to pulp and periradicular tissues.10,11
The most common technique error that prompted a retake for both direct and PSP receptors was image receptor misplacement for bitewings and inadequate coverage of the apical area for periapical images.
