AUTHOR(S): Dr. Waseem ul Ayoub and Dr. Ulfat Majeed Malik
Several methods have been used to determine the anterior teeth dimensions in edentulous patients. However, this remains debatable when preextraction records are not available. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine anterior dimensions in Kashmiri population.
Materials and methods: Total 154 subjects were taken. Pearson’s correlation tests were performed. combined anterior teeth width (CATW) and interalar width (IAW), intercommisural width (ICoW) was evaluated. central incisor length (CIL) with facial height (FH) and CIW with bizygomatic width (BZW) was also performed.
Results: Significant correlation was found between the CATW and ICoW and IAW (p-values <0.0001), no correlation was found between the FH and right CIL and BZW and right CIW.
Conclusion: It was concluded that the ICoW and IAW measurements are only predictable methods to determine reference value for CATW.
