The dental system is an integral part of the human body; its growth and development can, and should, be studied in parallel with other physiological maturity indicators, such as bone age, menarche, and height. Knowledge about the development of dentition can be applied not only in dentistry and orthodontics, but in such diverse fields as physical anthropology, endocrinology, nutrition, and forensic odontology as well.
