A dentist maintains his patient’s record regarding all the diagnostic information and contains valuable information that can be beneficial to the dentist as well as forensic odontologists during forensic human identification as seen in cases of mass disaster or in a highly decomposed corpse.
Therefore, it is of significance that an forensic odontologist is well aware of how the teeth are recorded in the chart.
Here is a small presentation on Dental Record System, how they are made, which is not in the syllabus of many universities, but is a very important topic one should not ignore. I have also covered how identification by teeth is done and how photography of a corpse is done for dental comparison.
Let us know if we should incorporate more sub topics in the presentation and we shall do it for you. Keep Reading till then 🙂
