What is kvaal dental age?

Dear student,

Kvaal along with some other researchers  devised a method to calculate the dental age of an individual by checking the size of dental pulp.With the increase in age, the dental pulp decreases in size due to secondary dentin deposition and can be used as a parameter of age estimation even beyond 25 years of age. This can be done by taking simple dental radiographs and no extraction of tooth is required.

Regards
