The pattern of pain was explained as being a heterotopic presentation, including projected pain from V2 and referred pain from central excitatory effect coming from the incisive papilla's neurovascular area (Sessle et al.).
McGee stated that Incisive papilla remains in a constant position after tooth loss and found the average distance between the anterior point of the maxillary central incisor (MCI) and the center of incisive papilla (IP) is 7.7mm.5 Hickey while suggesting some guides in the labio-lingual positioning of the anterior teeth stated that the labial surface of the central incisor should be 8-10 mm in front of the middle of the incisivie papilla.6 Dayton D Krajicek wrote that the maxillary central incisor is located anterior to the incisive papilla on hard palate.
Ortman and Ding H.Tsao.9 The usefulness of the incisive papilla as a guide was also determined by Grave et al and suggested that the labial surface of the incisors should be 12-13mm from the posterior border of the incisive papilla.
Esa Klemetti et al studied the location of the incisive papilla along with the palatal gingival margin as a function of factors affecting the residual ridge in the edentulous maxilla, such as duration of edentulousness and skeletal mineral status.
Watt and Likeman showed that the incisive papilla migrates on an average of 1.6 mm forward and 2.3 mm forward upward as a result of the remodeling of the region.
The length of the incisive papilla in the dentulous maxilla was 1.6m longer than in the edentulous which they attributed to
However for determining the distance of the incisors, the oral edge of the incisive papilla is a reliable landmark as the scar line was more broad in the incisor area because of extensive resorption of the alveolar bone.
Schiffman found in 92.1% of 507 cases, the line connecting the tips of the upper canines was within an area of 1mm anterior and posterior to the centre of the incisive papilla and in 73.8% this line passed through the tips of the canine.
The middle of the Incisive papilla appeared to lie close to the inter-canine line in 93.4% and found to be less than 2mm and in 87% less than 1.5mm according to E.
Using 3-dimesnional measurement, Po-Sung Fu et al, on the Taiwanese population found the inter-canine line was 0.27 + 1.3 mm posterior to the centre of the incisive papilla according to the finding of Schiffman.
LVJ Lassila, E.Klemetti and VP Lassila used the incisive papilla as guide for locating the molar and premolar teeth.
Majid Zia et al compared the distance of the mesial edge of the maxillary central incisors and the posterior border of the incisive papilla in dentate individuals with different arch form.
