Background and AimAmongst the various calcified structures in the human body, teeth have gained lot of popularity in estimating the sex of an individual as they are highly resistant to destruction and decomposition. The aim of this study was to determine the diagnostic analysis of mesiobuccal and distolingual dimensions of canine teeth in determining the gender in dentistry students in 2020.
Material and Methods: This cross-sectional analytical study was performed on all dental students of the 5th semester (130 students) in the School of Dentistry of Islamic Azad University in 2019 and with all teeth except the third molar. Eligible for admission, an alginate mold was prepared from the upper and lower jaw arches and poured by dental yellow acetone plaster. Then, mesiodistal and buccolingual dimensions of permanent canine teeth were recorded using digital caliper. Data were analyzed by t-test.
Result: In general, the mean age of students was 23.97±1.43 years (22-26 years). Out of 130 students, 72 (55.4%) were male and 58 (44.6%) were female. The mean mesiodistal and buccolingual dimensions of maxillary and mandibular canine teeth on both right and left sides in students were not significantly different (p <0.05).
Conclusion: The analysis of  dimensions of the permanent canine teeth has not any important role on determination gender.
