Abstract : Sixty-one healthy young males between 17 and 24 years of age were used to estimate the normal range of horizontal tooth mobility. These subjects had been carefully examined to insure that they were in good gingival and periodontal health with no easily detectable oral habits. Subjects with more than a minimal amount of malocclusion were also eliminated from the study. It was found that the range of horizontal tooth mobility was rather wide. There were distinct differences in mean mobility values between teeth of the same type. (Author)
