Attrition is the physiological wearing away of the tooth as a result of tooth to tooth contact, as in mastication. It has been considered as a physiologic change which increased with the age. In certain cases microscopic examination of the teeth may not be possible and the age estimation relies on the sole examination of the attrition of the teeth. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the degree of attrition as objectively as possible, neutralizing the role of oral pathology and check out the reliability of attrition in age estimation.
