Distances from the apex to the buccal bone plate were measured on the computed tomography (CT) images of 1806 teeth from 66 patients, using an image analyzer program (Image-Pro Plus, Ver. 4.0, Media Cybernetics). In the mandible, the mean distance from the distal apex of the mandibular second molar to the buccal bone plate was the largest distance measured, at 8.51 mm, followed by distance from the mesial root to the buccal bone (7.34 mm). In the mandibular first molar, the mean distal and mesial bone thicknesses were 5.18 mm and 4.09 mm, respectively. However, when there were two distal roots, the distance of the disto-lingual root to the buccal plate was found to be 9.52 mm, which constitutes the greatest measured thickness. In the maxillary buccal roots, the distances from the mesio-buccal and disto-buccal root of the second molar to the buccal bone plate were the largest, at 4.63 mm and 3.61 mm, respectively. The average distances from the palatal apex of the maxillary first and second molars to the buccal bone plate were 10.69 mm and 10.17 mm, respectively, while, from the palatal bone plate, average distances of 3.15 mm and 3.08 mm were measured. Special considerations, such as bony lid approach, lingual approach, or intentional replantation may be required, especially when a patient has a surgical need in the second molars and the disto-lingual root of the mandibular first molar, or in the palatal root of the maxillary molars.
