    Abstract

    When one must identify a deceased individual, accurate estimation of the age of the individual is important. Teeth are particularly useful in age evaluations because they display a number of observable age-related variables and they tend to remain intact under circumstances which might alter or obliterate the rest of the skeleton. Where dental records are available, of course, separate determination of age may not be necessary, but when little or no information is available about the deceased individual, a simple estimation of age is of great value.
