Page xv - OBLIQUE RIDGE. A ridge running obliquely across the occlusal surface of the upper molars. It is formed by the union of the triangular ridge of the disto-buccal cusp with the distal portion of the ridge forming the mesio-lingual cusp.
Page xiv - The anterior-posterior perpendicular central line of the body. MESIAL. Toward the median line. Those surfaces of the teeth which, as they stand in the arch, and following its curve, are toward the median line, are called mesial surfaces. MESIAL ANGLE. A contraction of mesio-incisal angle, also of mesio-bucco-occlusal angle (qv) MESIAL CAVITIES.
