Abstract

  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. So incisive papilla can be recognized as an important landmark in complete denture construction. Other recognised roles of the papilla have also been included in this overview.

Keywords: Incisive Papilla; Papilla Incisor Distance; Canine-Papilla-Canine Line (C-P-C Line); Maxillary Anterior Tooth Position
