mandibulare mascellare

English translation: maxillary molar

Medical: Dentistry
Italian term or phrase: mandibulare mascellare
"Per la verità, un’usura marcata è presente anche sull’unico molare mandibolare in situ, il terzo destro, che sembra spiegabile solo con un’anomalia occlusale che lo avrebbe contrapposto al secondo *mandibolare mascellare*, la cui usura non è però rilevabile, essendo mancante"

I'm confused by "mandibolare mascellare" here. Surely it should only be mascellare, since we are talking about wear on a mandibular (lower) molar due to possible occlusion with an upper, and therefore "mascellare" tooth (which is missing).

Dentistry is not my thing so I may have got the wrong end of the stick altogether...
any help appreciated
