Clinical studies carried out on dentin thickness in adults, as well as experimental studies carried out on ovariectomized animals, indicate that odontoblast activity, like that of osteoblastic cells, differs in the two sexes. To examine the evidence for differences in odontoblast activity before puberty, we have measured dentin thickness and other crown dimensions from bite-wing radiographs of the lower first molars in 240 children aged 4-16 years. The radiographs were obtained from pedodontic… Expand
Dimorphism in dental tissues: Sex differences in archaeological individuals for multiple tooth types.
TLDR
The findings support the potential use of dental tissues to estimate sex of individuals from archaeological samples, while also indicating that individuals aged using current dental aging methods may be underaged or overaged due to sex differences in enamel thickness. Expand
Dimorphism in Dental Tissues: Sex differences in Archaeological Individuals for Multiple Tooth Types
TLDR
The findings support the potential use of dental tissues to estimate sex of individuals from archaeological samples, whilst also indicating that individuals aged using current dental ageing methods may be under- or over-aged due to sex differences in enamel thickness. Expand
Modern human molar enamel thickness and enamel-dentine junction shape.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that enamel thickness and EDJ shape vary among molar crowns, between sexes, and among populations; these factors must be considered in the categorization and comparison of ape and human molars, particularly when isolated teeth or fossil taxa are included. Expand
Sexual dimorphism of the dental tissues in human permanent mandibular canines and third premolars.
TLDR
Results suggest that relative area measures of crown tissues are more predictable measures of sexual dimorphism than absolute measures, and tissue proportions may remain constant despite intrasex variation in overall tooth crown size. Expand
Comparing the mesiodistal crown size of permanent teeth in male and female orthodontics patients
TLDR
Determined mesiodistal size of casts prepared from permanent teeth in both sides of jaw in male and female patients was significantly higher than women and can be useful in reconstructive purposes when a natural size is required by dentists. Expand
Sexual dimorphism of the human mandible and its association with dental development.
TLDR
It is argued that the infant and adult dimorphism of the mental region may be associated with the development of supralaryngeal structures. Expand
Contribution of dental tissues to sex determination in modern human populations.
TLDR
3D variables from mandibular canine dental tissues are useful for sex determination as they present a high degree of dimorphism, which application should be considered as a supplemental method to others. Expand
Intercusp relationships of the permanent maxillary first and second molars in American whites.
TLDR
Weak statistical dependence between cusp relationships and traditional MD and BL diameters suggest that separate stage- and location-specific molecular signals control these different parts (and different stages) of crown formation. Expand
Modern humans sex estimation through dental tissue patterns of maxillary canines.
TLDR
The present study supports that methods for sex determination based on dental tissue measurements can achieve high allocation accuracies, being especially useful in the case of subadults or when no other appropriate method is available. Expand
Can Human Maxillary Premolars Discriminate Between Sexes in South Asian Populations?
The studies have illustrated odontometric analysis can be used to determine the sexual dimorphism effect on size of the teeth in various populations. The main aim of the study was to identify theExpand

A radiographic assessment of enamel thickness in human maxillary incisors.
TLDR
Sex-specific correlations between enamel thickness and crown width of the dentine were low (and lower for males), indicating considerable independence between regulatory mechanisms of dentine and enamel development. Expand
Influence of Occlusal Wear and Age on Formation of Dentin and Size of Pulp Chamber
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to ascertain the influence of occlusal wear, and age on the formation of Dentin, and the sites of dentin formation in relation to the size of the pulp chamber were investigated. Expand
Amount of secondary dentin as an indicator of age.

TLDR
Multiple regression analyses showed that by combining several types of measurements, the correlation with age was increased and a tendency was also observed towards reduced speed of secondary dentin formation in the elderly and in women. Expand
Age-progressive changes in pulp widths and root lengths during adulthood: a study of American blacks and whites.
TLDR
This cross-sectional study of pulp dimensions and root lengths in sound teeth tested for changes with age in adulthood while controlling for differences in gender and race. Expand
Crown components of mandibular molar teeth in 45,X females (Turner syndrome).
TLDR
The present results suggest that there is an inverse correlation between the duration of crown formation and the severity of size reduction, and the relative reduction in "dentine" or the estimated mesiodistal width of the tooth germ in the 45,X females indicates that their tooth development is affected at an early stage of morphogenesis.

The effect of ovariectomy on dentin formation and caries in adult rats.
TLDR
Ovariectomy activated dentin formation significantly in rats fed either a high-sucrose or a non-cariogenic diet, indicating enhanced odontoblast function and the rate of dentinal apposition in adult rats was smaller than reported in young animals. Expand
Sexual dimorphism in mesiodistal dentin and enamel thickness.
TLDR
It is concluded that sexual dimorphism in mesiodistal tooth sizes is due to differences in dentin thickness and not enamel thickness. Expand
Immunocytochemical detection of apoptosis in human odontoblasts.
TLDR
This work found out the consequences of this pulp chamber reduction on odontoblast number and distribution, which seems to result from a programmed cell death, which eliminates half of the odontoblasts over a 4-yr period. Expand

TLDR
The potential value of a little-known aging method which can be easily applied to estimate age in both living individuals and skeletal material of unknown age is illustrated. Expand
