    Background: The position of the incisive foramen in relation to the central incisors varies in different standard textbooks. This study was aimed at bringing in a standard value for the distance between the incisive foramen and central incisors in male and female skulls. Aim: This study aims to measure the variation in position of the incisive foramen in relation to the interproximal region of the central incisors in dry human skull. Materials and Methodology: A total of 61 adult dry human skulls were selected, with full complement of teeth with fully erupted third molars. Measurements were made from the interproximal region of the central incisors to the incisive foramen using a digital Vernier caliber. Results: The study inferred the location of incisive foramen to be about 0.99 cm from the interproximal region of the central incisors.Conclusion: There was no significant difference between the average values of the male and female skulls. The study was not significant statistically due to limited study samples.
