The aim of this study was to assess if there was a significant difference between males and females for some dimensions of face and central maxillary incisors. For this purpose two thousand individuals in the age from 18 to 24, with intact frontal teeth were measured by a precise calliper. There were 920 males and 1,080 females. According to the statistical analysis it was concluded: 1. In the population studied the central incisor's width was smaller than in Anglo-Saxon Caucasians, in black race or yellow race; 2. Men had larger face and central maxillary incisors' dimensions than women (p<0, 01), except for the maxillary central incisor's cervical width (p>0, 05); 3. Dimensions of the face length did not exceed ± 6% between gender, dimensions of the face width did not exceed ± 5%, dimensions of the maxillary central incisor width at the contact point level did not exceed ± 3% and dimensions of the maxillary central incisor width at the incisal edge did not exceed ± 4% between men and women.
