    Abstract

    Teeth are the most durable structures in the human body. In many archeological sites or forensic cases, the teeth are the only human remains. This is particularly true when soil is extremely acidic. In other cases, such as transportation disasters, the remains may be so damaged that dental aging is necessary.
