Abstract

The estimation of age of adult individuals usually employs methods based on age-related changes in the human skeleton. The main aim of this study was to assess dental age through analysis of images from peri-apical x-rays based on a new algorithm for automatic estimation of pulp and tooth area. The algorithm was tested on a sample of 40 canines of males and 30 of females from subjects between the ages of 20 and 70.
