Better Age Identification in Africa through Teeth Examination

Posted on : Monday , 4th December 2017

For many rural African populations, information on uncompromised improvement and development variation is missing, and analysts normally look at development in the population of interest to standards that are planned for European or US kids. Be that as it may, analysts from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg think evaluating teeth could be a significantly more precise approach to decide the age of children in Africa.
 
Population dependent data of human biological development and growth is key for evaluating the health status of a group. In view of this, scientists are researching dental improvement as a reliable parameter for surveying the age of kids and adolescents in forensic and anthropological settings. In a newly published review of two dental development evaluation protocols, the Demirjian and Willems techniques, they found the Willems strategy to give a more precise estimation of chronological age. Nonetheless, it was mentioned that the age of children in many population groups are still overestimated using the protocol. 
 
Co-author of the paper Dr Lynne A. Schepartz, an associate professor and head of the Biological Anthropology Division at the university, stated: “It is important to accurately estimate chronological age from a sample of living children in the population of interest, because this information can then be used as a benchmark for evaluating the growth of health-compromised children. Our review illustrates that there is significant population-level variation in the tempo of dental development.”
 
As indicated by the analysts, the discoveries have indications for growth evaluation in general and the utilization of worldwide standards that are to a great extent untested in African populaces. They expressed that the data from dental advancement may assume a noteworthy part in deciding numerous clinical choices, including decisions about treatment alternatives and arrangement of treatment later on. The review, titled “The Demirjian versus the Willems method for dental age estimation in different populations: A meta-analysis of published studies”, was published on 8 November in PLoS ONE.
