  • Dental Charting is a task that Dental Assistants will do for the dentist on a daily basis. You will need to become familiar with surfaces of a tooth, existing conditions, and restorations.


Terminology
Terminology

  • Maxillary – Upper Teeth

  • Mandibular – Lower Teeth

  • Anterior – Front Teeth

  • Posterior – Back Teeth

  • Midline – Imaginary line down the very center


Surfaces
Surfaces

  • Mesial – closest to Midline

  • Distal – farthest from Midline

  • Lingual – closest to Tongue

  • Facial – closest to Lips (Anterior)

  • Buccal – closest to Cheeks (Posterior)

  • Incisal – Biting Edge of Tooth (Anterior)

  • Occlusal – Chewing Surface (Posterior)



  • Teeth are numbered from 1 to 32.

  • On the upper arch, from left to right (dentist view) going from 1 to 16.

  • Then on lower arch, from right to left, going 17 to 32.
