    Introduction: A total of 42 intact mandibles from aged 8 weeks to 76 years were assessed for variations in mineralization, bone deposition and resorption, and osteoporosis. The results indicate that there is marked constructive activity in young bone, then a diminution of activity until early middle life. In later middle life and old age, there is a comparative rise in bone resorption and osteoporosis and an increased variation in mineral density. Materials and Methods: A total of 42 mandibles were used for this research from the Anatomy Department of Saveetha Dental College. Results: Through this research, it was found that the length and breadth of ramus increases from birth to adult and to old age, whereas the angle of the mandible decreases with age from infant to adult, then again it increases in old age. There is a shift of mental foramen as well. Conclusions: Through this research, it was known that change in the mandible occurs due to aging. Hence, the age of the individual should be known for clinical procedure. The most important is the shifting of mental foramen. The most common position of the mental foramen is between the first and second premolar. The knowledge on the position of the mental foramen is important during clinical practices. This study also helps in determining the age of the mandible approximately which, in turn, will help in forensic science-related cases.
