Abstract

Objective: To measure the distance amongst the incisive papilla’s centre and posterior border to the incisal edge of the upper central incisors in dentate individuals.
Methodology: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted at Department of Prosthodontics at Isra Dental Col-lege, Hyderabad from May, 2020 to Feb, 2021. During study period, 200 patients aged between 20-40 years of either gender were included. Impressions and casts made. On the cast and distance measured and recorded for maxillary central incisor and incisive papilla with the help of vernier calliper.
Results: Mean distance between maxillary central incisive papilla’s centre was 9.20mm while it was 12.47mm from up-per incisor to the incisive papilla’s posterior border. Distance among the maxillary central incisor to the incisive papilla’s center and posterior border were significant statically in both genders.
Conclusion: While fabricating removable prosthesis, the results of current study may used as primary point for position of maxillary incisors.
