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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
