    Abstract

    Estimation of the age at death of an individual from dental remains is commonly practiced. Ages of mineralization, crown completion, eruption, and root completion are usually accurate and reasonably easy to determine. After these and other growth processes are completed (at approximately age 30 years), age estimation becomes more difficult. Histological changes in bones and teeth have great potential for being the best age indicators for adult life.
