Atypical Forensic Dental Identifications.

Forensic dental identification specialists are typically the last conventional option for postmortem identification. Forensic dental identification is most often accomplished by comparing radiographs of the decedent’s teeth with the dental radiographs obtained from the dentist of the suspected victim.
