Abstract

Dr. Rashmi Chinna* and Dr. Sudarshan Chinna

ABSTRACT

Age is one of the essential factors, which plays an important role in every aspect of life. Age, gender as well as race are used for identification of a person. Age is an important factor in clinical practice, research and court law and is estimated on the basis of chronological age, dental age, mental age and others. Dental age is considered to be vital as tooth development shows less variability in relation to chronological age. Hence dental age is considered to be vital in establishing the age of an individuals and age estimation by teeth in adults play important role in various methods of age estimation in adults in different stage of tooth developmental stages, different morphological stages of mineralization and we discuss here various aspects of age estimation like, morphological, biochemical and radiographic methods and its scope and limitation. These methods have inherent advantages and disadvantages. Although there are many methods of age estimation, Demirjian method has been used universally with appropriate modifications. The forensic literature has provided several methods for estimating age in adults, both dead and living. One of the interesting implications of forensic odontology is age estimation by means of teeth.

Keywords: Age estimation, adults.
