Age estimation by applying cameriere method for lower 2nd premolars using orthopantomograph

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Nusrat Nazir and Altaf Hussain
ABSTRACT:Introduction: The aim of this study was to determine age by Cameriere method using mandibular 2nd premolar by Panoramic Radiographs.
Materials and Methods: A total of 225 panoramic radiographs of Kashmiri subjects (108 males and 117 females), aged between 15 and 70 years were analyzed. According to Cameriere et al. measurements of the pulp and tooth areas were done. The morphological variables i.e, pulp tooth ratio, age and the subject’s gender were entered in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet for use as predictive variables for age estimation. Chronological age of an individual was calculated by subtracting the birth date from the date on which the radiographs were exposed for that particular individual.
Results: It was found that the 2nd premolar was the closely correlated with age(r=-0.951) and SEE 3.32 years.
Conclusion: As the development of teeth varies among populations and is genetically determined, it becomes imperative to derive population specific data bases. From the results of this study, it may be concluded that the use of Cameriere’s age-related variables in lower premolars and canine and the application of the new regression formulae on data obtained from orthopantomograph lead to accurate age estimates, if at least the selection criteria are respected and good quality orthopantomograph with clear radiological images are used.
