Abstract

Aim

To do a research on the estimation of stature from the mandibular width.

Objective

To assess or estimate the approximate height of the person using the dimensions of their mandibular width.

Background

The mandible is the single mobile bone of the skull which develops from the sixth week of intrauterine life. It helps in providing sophisticated functions like mastication and also helps in speech. Mandibular dimensions are helpful to determine where the growth occurs at the mandible and the time it occurs.

Materials and Methods

The mandibular width was measured using vernier calipers. The height of the person was measured using the Standard Height Frame for 30 females.

Reason

This study will help in Forensic Anthropology to estimate or give an approximate height of an individual.
