AN INSIGHT TO INCISIVE PAPILLA
Dr. Nivea Verma*, Dr. Bisma Khan and Dr. Manesh Lahori
The incisive papilla remains relatively constant in position and is frequently used as an anatomic landmark for anterior teeth. Many studies have been conducted to determine the relationship between incisive papilla and maxillary central incisor and measured the papilla incisor distance in dentate subjects to extrapolate this distance as a guide to place maxillary central incisors in complete dentures. Papilla incisor measurements were made either from the middle or posterior border of the papilla and certain ethnic and national norms have been recommended to set the central incisors in complete dentures.
Keywords: Incisive papilla, biometric guides, canine-papilla-canine line.
