Summary

This study examines the changes in the strength of relationship between dental and skeletal ages against chronological age in a sample of known sex and age skeletons using bivariate correlations and linear regression models. The sample is selected from the Electronic Encyclopedia on Maxillo-Facial, Dental, and Skeletal Development by Dr. Arto Demirjian, and consists of 483 observations from 78 individuals aged 6 to 19 years. The results indicate that while dental maturity has a stronger correlation with chronological age in younger individuals, as they get older this strength decreases and the relationship between skeletal maturity and chronological age gets stronger.
