The aim of this in vitro study was to determine the pulp chamber morphological measurements and also to establish the relationship of cemento enamel junction (CEJ) to the roof of the pulp chamber of maxillary first premolars in Indian population. One hundred extracted human maxillary first premolars were used. Each premolar tooth was radiographed by RVG. Measurements were made by using the grid option in RVG. Results were as follows (Mean SD in mm): distance from floor of the pulp chamber to furcation 1.79 0.8mm, distance from roof of the pulp chamber to furcation = 4.66 I.06mm, distance from the buccal cusp tip to the furcation = 11.59 1.17mm, distance from the buccal cusp tip to the roof of the pulp chamber =6.93 0.64mm, height of the pulp chamber 2.87 0.99mm. The results of these measurements revealed that morphological measurements of maxillary first premolars in Indian population were similar to previous studies and roof of the pulp chamber coincided with CEJ in 96% of the specimens.
