|SECTION II||CLASS TRAITS THAT APPLY TO MOST MOLARS|
Refer to Appendix page 7 while reading about the following class traits of all molars.
From the buccal or lingual views, both maxillary and mandibular molars are wider mesiodistally than occlusocervically (Appendix 7a), and from the proximal views, they are both wider faciolingually than occlusocervically (Appendix 7h).
