Schematic illustrations of the numerous pulpar configurations with respect to commonly observed variations in maxillary cheek teeth of Triadan positions 06 to 11. Degree of segmentation is displayed according to tooth age, starting with the non-segmented pulp cavity on top and the maximally segmented pulp cavity at the bottom. Configurations within each degree of segmentation are displayed in relation to their incidence. The most frequent configurations are highlighted by larger size and multi-colouring. Less common variations are smaller sized and simply coloured. The proposed pattern of pulpar segmentation with age is indicated in green. Connections are demonstrated by a straight line. Red is used for the largest pulp compartment within one tooth. Orange, ocher and purple differentiate between the second, third and fourth pulp compartment in a tooth.
