AbstractAim: To investigate the dental morphology of incisors of the Southern Chinese and compare these with studies in different populations. Materials and Methods: The dental morphology of study casts of an unselected sample from a 12 year old Hong Kong Oral Health Survey of 12 year old children (n=459; 295 boys and 164 girls) were studied. Results: The moderate types of shovel-shaped central incisors were prevalent in the Southern Chinese, whereas the pronounced type of shovel-shaped incisors were more prevalent in the Taiwan Chinese. Conclusion: The Southern Chinese shows a lesser degree of shoveling than the other Chinese populations.
