Three methods were used to obtain a ratio of the maxillary to the mandibular anterior teeth, with results of 1.29, 1.30, and 1.31. It can be concluded that a ratio of 1.30 is sufficient to determine the approximate width of the six maxillary anterior teeth when given the size of the mandibular natural anterior teeth. This ratio should be valid to select a maxillary denture mold of sufficient width mesiodistally to obtain a Class I canine relationship. However, the ratio may need a slight… CONTINUE READING
