Top Articles In Forensic Odontology

Forensic dentistry or forensic odontology is the application of dental expertise to certain criminal and civil laws which are applied in criminal justice by police departments. In addition to identifying entire or fractured bodies, forensic dentists are interested in assisting investigating agencies in identifying recovered human remains; forensic dentists may also be required to assist in determining the age, ethnicity, profession, prior dental background and socioeconomic status of unidentified human beings. Forensic dentistry is the careful care, review and evaluation of the dental evidence, which can then be used in the interests of justice.  The proof that can be extracted from teeth is the age (in children) of the individual to whom the teeth belong. It is achieved using photographs of dental records including radiographs, ante-mortem (before death) and post-mortem (after death), and DNA. "Forensic odontology" comes from Latin, which means a forum, or where legal issues are discussed.
