Abstract A survey has been presented that correlates measurements of upper lip type, sex, race, and age of dentulous patients with the amount of exposure of the maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth with the lips gently parted and in the resting position. Perhaps the most interesting finding was the gradual reduction in the amount of maxillary central incisor exposure with an increase in age, accompanied by a gradual increase in the mandibular tooth exposure. The importance of the amount of mandibular teeth seen in complete dentures has not been sufficiently emphasized in previous literature.
