Abstract

The ability to assign accurate age estimates to human remains and living individuals is an important element of forensic practice. Age estimation can contribute to a routine forensic dental identification, can be a vital component in the investigation of anthropological/archaeological specimens, and may be an integral part of the Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) process in mass fatality incidents. The reliability of age estimation varies depending on the age of the victim and the technique employed. Research into the techniques of age estimation has been prolific in recent years. This chapter will provide a summary of the development of age estimation research and discuss current methodologies.
