Abstract

Introduction: With improvements in dentistry, esthetics in complete dentures has become more significant. Tooth selection has an important role in esthetics and success rate of complete denture, among which anterior teeth play a more important part. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between length and width of natural maxillary central and lateral incisors, and some measurable parameters of the face. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, 100 men were selected and some parameters such as length and width of right central and lateral incisor of maxilla, arc distance between the distal surface of the canines (ARCD), interalar width (IAW), vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO), and vertical dimension of rest position (VDR) were measured. For detection of the relationship between parameters of face and length and width of teeth, pearson correlation and linear regression were used. Results: The ratio of mean central and lateral incisor lengths to mean VDO were 0.16 and 0.14 respectively. The ratio of mean central and lateral widths to mean ARCD were 0.14 and 0.10 respectively. These ratios make up to be 0.28 for both side centrals and 0.48 for centrals and laterals. Conclusion: By use of measurements in this study and other methods, we can determine the length and width of anterior teeth in complete dentures. Key words: Length and width of central and lateral teeth, tooth selection, vertical dimension of occlusion.
