    Introduction: Basically, the most complicating and perplexing aspects of complete denture prosthodontics is the selection of appropriately sized maxillary anterior teeth denture. The main aim of this study is to compare and correlate the usage of maxillary intercanine distance and interalar distance in denture making for the useful aspects of a patient with significant dental complaints. Materials and Methods: Nasal width was measured using two points marked on the nose of either side of the face with fine tip marking aid, which indicates the widest point in the outer surface of the alae of the nose. The distance was measured using a vernier caliper. For the determination of intercanine distance, the distance between the two lateral edges of the right and left canine teeth was taken in square, ovoid, and tapering arch forms. The data obtained were expressed as mean ± standard deviation. Results: The average value of the intercanine distance was found to be 10.44 ± 0.35. The average value of the intermaxillary canine distance was found to be 14.40 ± 0.51. The correlation between the two measurements was analyzed. Conclusion: It is based on the principle that the parallel line drawn from the alae of the nose touches the tip of the canine. On the other hand, this method might not hold better for all types of dental arch forms. This article finds a correlation between the alar of the nose and the tip of the canine for the various arch forms.
