Age estimation by radiographs is one of the most commonly used methods these days due to ease of handling, minimal instrumentation and universal acceptance. Age plays an important role in establishing the identity of the person. The radiographic method is a simple, quick, economic, non-mutilating and non-invasive method of age identification.  It can be used for determining the age in dead as well as living persons in all communities without any religious or scientific issue. This article describes various methods of age determination on the basis of radiographic features in ante-mortem and post-mortem cases. 

Keywords: Age Estimation; Forensic Odontology; Dental Age; Chronological Age.
