ABSTRACT
The need to identify and determine the age of the unidentified dead persons or accident victims of natural disasters is clear. Also, some remedial measures in the field of orthodontics and pediatric dentistry depend on knowing the patient's physiological age. Previous studies suggested that dental age have a good correlation with physiological age more than skeletal or other common methods of age determination. Among the various methods used to determine dental age, dental radiography provides wide facilities for clinicians. Being noninvasive and the ability of performing the technique on live subjects as well as simplicity and low cost and reliable results, have led researchers to investigate further on that. The formation and calcification process of teeth and changes during aging has been regarded by many, leading to introduce various methods in which the field. In this study, 36 related articles were achieved by searching PUBMED, Science Direct and Google Scholar resources and discussed. Provided what diversified means of determining age using dental radiographs is encouraged, it is recommended to be not restricted to use only one of the methods because the multilateral approach is more reliable.
