Dental Data

Dental age assessment involves analysis of available dental data of an individual in her/his current state. The term prior data' refers to data collected when that individual was in a previously known and documented circumstance and does not mean a specific point in time. The term current data' refers to the available data for the individual or remains in her/his current state. For a deceased individual requiring age assessment, the current data is referred to as postmortem data. For a living individual requiring age assessment, the data is simply referred to as prior dental data and current dental data.
