Forensic Odontology

Forensic dentistry (odontology) is a vital branch of forensic science that involves the application of dental knowledge, primarily for the identification of human remains.  The forensic dentist’s work includes:

The comparison with dental records

The evaluation of bitemarks (animal or human)

The comparison with suspect dentitions;

The aging of individuals by the dentition to determine chronological age both in the living and in the deceased.

 The evaluation of an individual’s dental/oral injuries to resolve civil (compensation, etc.) or criminal matters (assault, etc.); and,

resolving dental malpractice or negligence issues.

Forensic odontology has expanded well beyond the important work of identifying remains since that time. It has moved into solving crimes. In fact, forensic odontology has played a major role in some extremely high-profile cases, including the conviction of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy.
