Age estimation from the measurement of open apices in the developing permanent dentition

Abstract

Dental age estimation methods are widely considered the most accurate indicator of chronological age in sub-adults in the
field of forensic anthropology. The primary aim of this study was to develop sub-adult age estimation standards for a Western
Australian population based on the quantification of apical closure of permanent dentition in relation to chronological age, using the method developed by Cameriere et al. (2006). Two Western Australian-specific statistical models (individual- and pooled-sex) were established; both with comparable predictive accuracy to previously established dental age estimation standards (Individual-sex Model ±0.99 years - male, ±0.95 years - female; Pooled-sex Model ±1 .01 years).
