ABSTRACT:The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between the facial form and arch form in Kashmiri population, which could be used as a guide in teeth selection. The study was conducted in the Department of Prosthodontics, Government Dental College and Hospital, Srinagar. Eighty subjects in the age group of 20–30 years were involved in the study. Facial form was obtained by using the formulae Facial index= (N-Gn/ Bi Zygomatic width) ×100 and is divided into three categories as Euryproscopic, mesoprosophic and leptoproscopic. To determine the arch form, the distance between the intercanine lines to incisal surface of maxillary central incisor was measured. The arch form was divided into three groups as square, ovoid and tapering. It was seen that squarish arch form and ovoid is predominant proportionally in leptoproscopic 69.4% & 30.1% respectively, and tapering in mesoprosophic.
