The value of the Gothic arch tracing in the positioning of denture teeth.
ABSTRACT Twenty-five subjects of three nationalities carried out Gothic arch tracings. Measurements between the side arms were compared with the upper intercuspid distances measured in the same subjects. A relationship was found which may be of value in the setting up of anterior maxillary denture teeth.

ABSTRACT: Lateral cephalometric roentgenograms were made of 50 subjects who had all of their natural anterior teeth and most of their posterior teeth in position. Tracings of certain cranial landmarks were made on acetate paper from the roentgenograms. The landmarks observed included the incisor teeth, the lips, and selected surfaces of mucous membranes that were made visible by a radiopaque paste. Reference lines were drawn and measurements were made between selected anatomic landmarks and the reference lines drawn on these tracings.The variations in the measurements confirmed the fact that each patient is an individual with anatomic relationships characteristic only of himself. However, certain findings may be used as guides in the initial placement of the anterior teeth and in shaping the base material of trial dentures. The tooth positions and the shape of the base material must be revised according to observations made in the mouth.Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry 02/1968; 19(1):36-45. · 1.72 Impact Factor
