      MORPHOMETRIC TRAITS OF MANDIBULAR CANINES FOR SEX ESTIMATION OF INDIVIDUALS IN ROMANIAN ADULT POPULATION (Abstract): Dental identification is the study of forensic odontology and represents a superior method of identification due to the increased resistance of teeth to the action of physical, mechanical, chemical and thanatological factors. In recent years, forensic odontology is facing a wide recognition because of the crucial role the discipline has in many legal and criminal cases, and experts in the field are constantly in research of more accurate and advanced methods. The present paper objective was to create discriminant function regarding the sex estimation based on the morphometric traits of the mandibular canines. The results show important dates regarding the dental identification for Romanian legal medicine validate the relation between the mesio-distal measurements of the teeth and the sex of unknown individuals. Dental identification plays a major role in the forensic identification process and the paper highlight the necessity of future studies in the field.
