The Odontological Identification of the Unknown Bodies
Grundmann, Claus/Rötzscher, Klaus
The identification of burned bodies correlates with an adequate quality and quantity of traces (1,2). By car-accident two adults burned and died. A third could be rescued by fire-fighters and was transferred to the hospital. The identification of the dead bodies was made exclusively by odontological comparison of ante-mortem plaster casts, x-rays and a-m/p-m records after oral section and maceration of the removed jaws.

Keywords: enzym maceration, forensic odontology, identification, oral autopsy techniques
