The permanent dentition was limited to the incisors, canines, and first molars. Regression equations for each tooth were produced. Liversidge and Molleson (1999) later expanded the sample from the Christ Church collection to include individuals up to the age of 19. In this particular study, data from the maxillary and mandibular teeth were combined. Cardoso (2007a) found that consistent estimates could be attained with this technique when applied to both mandibular and maxillary permanent teeth.

Despite its population-specific nature this study is still widely utilized for subadult aging (Buikstra and Ubelaker, 1994). Work on improving dental eruption standards for various populations continues and newer studies have been conducted that incorporate a wide variety of samples from modern contexts (Smith, this volume). , 1993). , Schour and Massler, 1941). Mincer et al. (1993) found that the third molar is a reasonably reliable indicator of age even in modern populations, and Solari and Abramovitch (2002) report an age estimation accuracy that is within 3 years for the Hispanic populations utilized during their study.

2, relative length outperformed absolute length in all comparisons, with the exception of one tooth (LRP3). The improvement in relative values is undoubtedly due to the fact that a relative measure standardizes for variation in overall tooth size. Therefore, only relative lengths of transparency for these 10 variables are used in generating age-predictive equations. 3. A one-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was performed to test the distribution of relative length of root transparency for each variable.
