Good morning:

I am working on a DE>EN dental document and would need a reference for the system used in Germany for numbering human teeth (Zahnbezeichnung, Zahnbenennung, Zahnnummer) analogous to the system used in the US, wherein each tooth receives a standard number.

Does anyone know of a site with a dental chart or figure that shows the maxillary and mandibular dental arch with each of the teeth numbered as used in Germany. Even better, a comparison of the German and US system of numbering the teeth.

Thanks very much!

Harold

Bezeichnungssystem, bei dem das Gebiss zunächst in Quadranten (Viertelkreise) unterteilt wird:

Rechte Hälfte des Oberkiefers = 1. Quadrant
Linke Hälfte des Oberkiefers = 2. Quadrant
Linke Hälfte des Unterkiefers = 3. Quadrant
Rechte Hälfte des Unterkiefers = 4. Quadrant

Jeder Quadrant hat acht Zähne, die ihrerseits vom Schneidezahn an mit 1 beginnend durchnummeriert werden.

Damit steht die Zahnbezeichnung fest: Die erste Ziffer gibt den Quadranten an, in dem sich der Zahn befindet, die zweite Ziffer steht für die genaue Lage des Zahnes im Quadranten. Wenn der Zahnarzt zum Beispiel etwas zu Zahn 18 einträgt oder von 18 ("eins acht") spricht, meint er den Weisheitszahn auf der rechten Seite des Oberkiefers.



and I assume you know this one:
