Animated Object of the Day: Molar of a 17-year-old Human Male

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory

1097_Wisdom_Tooth_LLOur animation for today is a human molar extracted from a Virginia Commonwealth University student when he was 17-years of age.  We have scanned additional teeth from this individual and will incorporate them into our digital human osteology collection.  Knowing the age of the individuals that contribute to an osteological collection is useful for researchers identifying bones or teeth of unknown age.
