Abstract

Various systems of anthropometry have been developed through the years in an attempt to elucidate important characteristics of the human dentition. Few methods are currently relied upon as valuable indicators of age, race or sex; The computerized study of anterior tooth positions is an attempt at further elucidation of age, race and sex characteristics. Bite marks in wax from a general population sample of known age, race and sex are the basis for this computerized study. The computerized procedure allows for the examination of minute variation in tooth position. Twelve teeth in total are analyzed for every specimen.
