Teeth is the best mineralised body tissue against various destructive agents. Teeth are extensively used for reconstructive identification. They are useful in the determination of gender by using different odontometric techniques and is usrful in case of major catastrophes when bodies are often damaged beyond recognition. male teeth have been found to be larger than those of the female.
The aim of the research is to determine gender using odontometric measurements of width of mandibular 2nd inter premolar distance
Materials and methods: The study sample consists of 60 people (30 males and 30 females) and age groups from 18 - 20 years. The measurements of width between the 2nd mandibular premolar. All the measurements were taken using a Digital Vernier Caliper. For one person, an average of three different values were taken. After collecting the data, it was uploaded in Excel sheet and then uploaded in SPSS software version 23.
Result: Wilcoxon Signed Rank test was done. The p value was 0.009 that is less than 0.05. That is gender determination can be done using odontometric measurements of the mandible
Conclusion: From the present study it was found sexual dimorphism can be determined using mandibular 2nd inter premolar width,
