Dry skulls Orthopantomography (OPG) are frequently used on scientific research or forensic investigations. It is stated that the use of the dental methods is a reliable tool when other identification methods fail. The human dentition and its features can give the forensic team a large number of singularities that can prove, by direct comparison that a body under examination is indeed a supposed individual once examined. This is the baseline for dental identification. In these situations, the antemortem (AM) radiologic data presented will determine the radiological exams to be conducted. Since the quality of the AM radiographs presented cannot be controlled, one must try to produce similar images with the best quality as possible. As a result of better hygiene habits, water fluoridation, advances on Dentistry preventive practices and greater access of the population to it, a decrease on the number of restorations can be noted, especially among the younger individuals.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
