Abstract

Application of Kvaal's Technique of Age Estimation on Digital Panoramic Radiographs

Rupa Chandramala, Ridhima Sharma, Mubeen Khan and Anurag Srivastava

Different types of radiographs of dental structures undoubtedly offer a least destructive approach to age estimation of individuals, but most of these methods are based on the calcification stages of the developing teeth. Very limited studies have been carried out in India using Kvaal’s technique based on pulp changes on radiographs as a tool for age estimation. Further, only few studies have been reported so far, applying Kvaal’s technique on orthopantomograph. The present study has been carried out using Kvaal’s technique of age estimation from dental pulp size on digital orthopantomograph of Indian population.
