ABSTRACT:Background: The present study was carried out to study the position of fovea platinae in relation to posterior palatal seal (post dam) in kashmiri population sample, whether in front, at or behind, and gender differentiations. Material and methods: 50 subjects were randomly selected. In each subject, hard and soft palate junction, anterior and posterior vibrating lines and fovea palatini were located and marked. Using Vernier caliper and divider, the distance between these lines and fovea palatini were measured and assessed for the location of vibrating line whether in front, at or behind the fovea platinae. Results: The results showed that 50.9% of patients had their vibrating line at their fovea platinae, 44.5% had it in front and 6.4% behind. There were highly significant differences between; age groups of patients and gender distribution of patients. Conclusion: The study concluded that fovea palatinae is: A reliable anatomical land mark that helps in determining the posterior palatal seal (post dam). The majority of patients had their vibrating line at their fovea palatinae.
