    Introduction: Sex determination is very crucial for forensic odontology and archeology. Skull is very important because it provides a protective case for the brain and special sense organs. Skulls are all usually very well preserved in most cases. Many times the skeletal parts can be fragmented and cannot be used for determination of the sex at that time morphological features of bones are taken into consideration because digital measurements cannot be done. It is one of the most promising used skeletal part in forensics. Different physical parameters of the human teeth are taken for research in this study. The study is taken with the aim of determination of sex using different parameters of maxillary central incisors. Aim: The aim of the study was to determine the sex of an individual using different morphological parameters of the maxillary central incisors. Materials and Methods: Maxillary central incisors of both males and females are taken. About 30 individuals between the age group of 18 and 21 of Saveetha Dental College, Poonamallee, Chennai, were observed. The mesiodistal distance and the proximal distance were mainly focused. The teeth were closely examined, and the difference among them was noted. Results: The sex differences among the maxillary central incisors of male and female were found. All these physical differences could be seen in all individuals of the sample collection. Conclusion: All these differences are very important in determining the sex of the skull in forensic dentistry or medicine. Sex determination is easy and the very best method today. Sexual dimorphism is also found out by it.
