Laura González-Garrido added an answer:Which method/process would you consider to be more accurate in determining dental caries in archaeological skeletal remains?
Is Hillson (2001) dental caries assessment too much extensive and complicated method? or, to the contrary; Are the other assessment methods superficial and incomplete and mistaken in root caries? for example, Kerr (1988)?.
Thanking you in advance. Laura.
I´m waiting for to use X-ray before issuing an exact diagnosis.

Ibrahim Cakir added an answer:How can we make a positive or personal identification from tooth caries?
I want to know how to achieve a positive identification of an individual regarding forensic odontology and forensic anthropology. Concisely, positive identification of the victim from tooth caries and the ways to determine perpetrator.
2. Can anyone suggest to me an article about these issues?
Thank you all for the reply. have a question to Mr. Sandholzer. You wrote tooth caries is a dynamic process.
1)if the caries is active before death, can it continue after death for a while?
2. For example, a man has been to a dentist and had a radiograph of his teeth, he has several tooth caries lesions from beginnig to groos lesions,
So How many time should be passed to make comparison correctly after his death?Following

Laura González-Garrido added an answer:Which could be the best standard method to use in an enamel hypoplasia formation ages study?According to some authors, different methods produce different results, thus it is critical to decide which method to use. I have a dilemma: Goodman and Rose, 1990? Goodman and Song, 1999? Reid and Dean, 2006? Or do I use everyone?
Thank you so much John for this recomendation, I got the full paper Cheers.Following
Leonidas Vassiliadis asked a question:Is it possible for human cells to be in absolute contact with fully mineralized tissue and stay alive and active for long time periods?
