    Introduction: The morphological analysis of the maxillary arch in edentulous and non-edentulous maxilla emphasizes on the significant edentulous changes that occur in maxilla in different populations and races. This provides essential data relevant in prosthodontics and orthodontics. Aim: The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the role of aging in both edentulous and non-edentulous width of maxillary arch. Objective: The objective of the research includes providing customized more appropriate treatment of elderly edentulous patients. Materials and Methods: The width of the maxillary arch of 40 human dry skulls was measured using Vernier calipers. The skulls were divided into edentulous and non-edentulous, which were further divided into females and males. Conclusion: The maxillary arches of males have prominent widths, whereas females do not have pronounced width. Moreover, it is reduced for females. The right and the left side of the maxilla do not have much of difference observed. Hence, these prominent maxillary arches help in proper masticatory forces and maintain normal occlusion.
