Determination of the exact age of a person can be a critical factor in many criminal or civil legal proceedings. This study aimed at estimating radiographic reliability of dental and skeletal hard tissues in determination of age and their interrelationship. Cervical vertebrae, carpal-metacarpal bones and mandibular third molar were utilized for estimation of age. Mandibular third molars was found to be most reliable as compared to cervical vertebrae and carpal-metacarpal bones. The height and length (size) of the cervical vertebrae derived in this study may be useful for age estimation in central Indian population. No significant correlation was observed between dental and skeletal age.
