    Introduction: Mandible is the largest, strongest, and lowest bone in the human face. It is the sexually dimorphic bone of skull. Sex of an unknown individual is determined based on the morphology and metric features of skull and mandible. The aim of the study is to determine the sex of unknown human adult mandible using metrical parameters. Materials and Methods: A random collection of undamaged human adult mandibles of South Indian population at the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College, Chennai, was subjected to metrical parameters such as bigonial breadth, bicondylar breadth, and mandibular length and also ramus height as well as the shape of chin to determine their sex. Results: The mean values of all the metric parameters were higher in males than that of females. The difference is significant for all kind of metric parameters. Conclusion: It is concluded that a morphological and morphometric parameters are very helpful to determine the sex of the mandible.
