To obtain an exact as possible measurement, the patient should sit in an upright position. Then the Papillameter is carefully inserted vertically under the relaxed upper lip until it rests on the support at the Papilla Incisiva. For better approximation, this procedure should be repeated one to two times to achieve the best possible measurement result.
The Papillameter is sterilized at 134°C in the autoclave.
- Precise determination of the length of the upper lip
- Easy determination of the length of the anteriors
