AbstractIntroduction: Stature is the height of a person in the upright posture. In the identification of unknown human remains, stature estimation may be done from human or skeletal remains in which other methods of identification are not possible in the primary investigation. Several studies had been done to correlate relationship of a person’s height to the odontometric parameters.
Aim: To estimate stature using odontometric measurement of distance between right and left second premolars of mandible
Materials and methods: The sample size chosen for the study was 60, which included 30 females and 30 males. After obtaining informed consent intermandibular distance of right and left 2nd premolar was measured using a digital vernier calliper and the height of subjects was measured using standard height measuring frame. The measurement was tabulated and linear regression equation was calculated using SPSS software.
