  1. 1. Forensic Odontology
  2. 2. Forensic Odontology !! About Us !! Some define forensic odontology as the intersection of the law and the science of dentistry. Others simply state that it happens when dentists assist law enforcement in solving crimes. And although a couple of thousand dentists throughout the world call themselves forensic odontologist’s or forensic dentists by virtue of study, training, and experience – in truth, nearly every dentist has the basic knowledge required to perform a dental identification – the staple of forensic dental practice. Many dentists have assisted in making dental IDs by providing the “dental records” that are so often referenced in the news – “the authorities are waiting for dental records to positively identify the remains.” © Copyright 2010 - 2015 SIFS India Pvt.

  4. 4. Forensic Odontology !! Disadvantages of Forensic Odontology !! A disadvantage of age estimates based on development is that most adults have completed their dental development by 25. For individuals who have attained full dental maturity, dental development is useless as an age estimator. Fortunately for the CIL, the majority of our casework is of individuals who are between the ages of 18 and 25. Age estimates can be used as useful corroborative circumstantial information in the identification process. They are also helpful in segregating individuals from large cases with multiple, commingled decedents. © Copyright 2010 - 2015 SIFS India Pvt. Ltd. All Rights Reserved
