Abstract

Forensic Odontology is a specialty field of dentistry that analyses dental evidence for the department of
justice. Forensic dentistry encompasses all dental specialties and the isolation of this industry from other
dental fields is nearly difficult. The objective of the paper is to discuss and describe the applications of
forensic odontology in the fields of justice and crime solving.
