Help with furcation of roots

User Level:
Student
Posted by: leicester  (10 years ago)
What is the point of multiple roots? Why do different teeth have different numbers of roots? and why do maxillary teeth have more roots than mandible teeth? If anyone could answer my question and suggest some good scientific papers/book on this subject I would be very grateful
Thanks x

its all about pressure
the posterior teeth take much pressure hence more root and more pdl
the lower teeth exert force ant upper teeth absorb force hence more root in upper teeth
