Complete denture prosthodontics: involves an artificial replacement of the lost natural dentition and associated structures of the maxilla and mandible for patient who has lost all their remaining natural teeth. In complete denture, maxillary anterior teeth play an important role in providing lip support and labial contour. The incisive papilla otherwise known as palatine papilla is a small pear oval shaped mucosal prominence situated at the midline of the palate, posterior to the palatal surface of the central incisors. The incisive papilla central incisor distance based on the dentulous biometric norm is a guide to form labial contour of occlusal rim in laboratory, which is later con??????rmed chairside by the clinician and subsequently to set upper central incisors in the dental arch. Aim of study: this study is done to explain if there is difference in position of anterior teeth in male and female, if we can consider incisive papilla as biometric guide in position of anterior teeth and the difference in incisive papilla central incisor relationship in dentulous and edentulous subjects. Materials and method: The sample consist of 80 subjects as a control group and 90 cases as a survey group and the distance between there incisive papilla and central incisor was measured with vernier caliber. Result: t-test is done to the total cases in this study and the result is 2.02 while the probability result is o.o49 which have significant difference. Conclusion: In the absence of pre-extraction records, the incisive papilla is an anatomic landmark that can be used as an aid for anterior tooth positioning in edentulous men patients while in female we could not consider it as a biometric guide.
