Abstract:

Aim & Objectives: This study was conducted to determine the distance between the mesioincisal angles of maxillary central incisors along the midline to a line running between the tips of the maxillary canines (IC line) in Arab population with different arch forms. Materials & Methods: 226 stone casts for selected dentate Saudi students were categorized into three groups according to the arch form (ovoid, tapering and square). Using a digital caliper, the distance between the mesioincisal angles of the maxillary central incisors along the midline to the (IC) line was measured .The data was collected and statistically analyzed. Results: The mean distance measured from the mesioincisal angles of the maxillary central incisors, along the midline, to the (IC line) showed statistical significant difference among the various arch forms. Conclusion: The fundamental results of this study can serve as a guide for determining the mesiodistal width of the maxillary anterior teeth in different arch forms.
