Abstract
Accurate assessment of the tooth length of maxillary incisor determines the success and prognosis of an endodontic treatment outcome. Periapical radiography is a method that can be used in determining the tooth length. This study was done to determine the average of the tooth length of maxillary incisors radiographically. Descriptive with cross sectional approach was used using eighty samples and samples selected by purposive sampling and the data were collected by questionnaire and x-ray photographs using periapical radiography. The research was conducted in Radiology Unit, Dental Hospital, Faculty of Dentistry, Universitas Sumatera Utara, on July and September 2017. The tooth length of maxillary incisors in Indonesian Mongoloid races population radiographically was 21-22 mm and all incisors had a single root (100%). It can be concluded that average of the tooth length of maxillary central incisor radiographically is 22.03 mm and lateral incisor is 21.23 mm.
