Acta stomatologica Croatica, Vol.36 No.3 September 2002. -

Dentistry plays a very important role in the identification of the victims in mass disasters. More than 50% of the identification work is concluded by dental means and investigation. Prosthetic work, and especially full rehabilitations with dental implants, crowns and bridges,

is very valuable for dental identification. The biggest problems, however, are full upper and lower dentures. Marking of dentures would be a very valuable aid in identification procedures and very easy to do at a law cost. The legal aspects of identification will

be explained, as well as the role of the forensic odontologist in the identification team.
