    Abstract

    The use of dental records in forensic sciences is one of the accepted and time-honored methods of identification. A trained forensic odontologist is consulted when identification cannot be determined through visualization, fingerprints, personal effects, or other methods. Traditionally, the forensic odontologist studies the dentition, using charts, X-rays, photographs, and sometimes study models. He then compares his findings with records believed to be those of the subject in question to confirm or rule out positive identification.
