The study evaluating the reliability of fovea palatine as a guide for posterior denture extension

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Mohd Altaf Tantray and Dr. Beenish Javed
ABSTRACT:
The maxillary complete denture gets adequate retention by achieving both post-palatal and peripheral seal. The posterior border of the maxillary complete denture must terminate posterior to anterior vibrating line (AVL) and anterior to posterior vibrating line (PVL). The fovea palatine act as landmarks for locating anterior vibrating line.
Purpose: The study was conducted to evaluate the relation of fovea palatine with anterior vibrating line as determined by Valsalva maneuver and Palpatory method.
Materials and Methods: The anterior vibrating line (AVL) is located by Valsalva maneuver and Palpatory method and marked by indelible pencil. The fovea palatine are identified and marked and related with anterior vibrating line (AVL) regarding the position. Then, the distance of separation between anterior vibrating line (AVL) and fovea palatine is measured with caliper.
Results: The mean separation between fovea palatine and vibrating line using Valsalva maneuver and Palpatory method is 0.66mm and 1.34mm respectively. Statistically significant results were observed when two methods were compared with student’s t-test.
Conclusion: The present study shows that fovea palatine lie anterior to anterior vibrating line but may be seen on and posterior to anterior vibrating line.
