    Aim: The aim of the study was to estimate the stature using odontometric measurement of mesiodistal width of the maxillary anterior teeth. Introduction: The tooth size standard based on odontometric investigation can be used in age and sex. Hence, a study was planned to measure the mesiodistal width of six anterior natural teeth. It also investigates the variation in the size of the left and right maxillary anterior teeth between men and women. The ideal dimension of teeth varies from person to person. In forensic investigations of such cases, estimation of stature becomes equally important along with other identification parameters such as age, sex, and race. Materials and Methods: The study was carried out in 50 males and 50 female subjects. The height of male and female subjects was measured using stadiometer. Measurement of mesiodistal width of maxillary anterior teeth was measured using vernier caliper. The observed values are correlated with each other and association between the two parameters was analysed and interpreted. Results: It was observed that the average height of male was 165.39 cm ± 4.1 and in female was 153.62 cm ± 3.2. The mean of mesiodistal width of the right maxillary anterior teeth was 23.22 ± 0.235 mm and for left maxillary teeth was 23.49 ± 0.659 mm in male. In female the mean of mesiodistal width of right maxillary teeth was 21.58 ± 0.323 mm and for left maxillary teeth was 21.94 ± 0.461 mm. Conclusion: Positive correlation was found between height of a person and that of the mesiodistal width of the maxillary anterior teeth. This study is useful in many fields of research, forensic investigation and anthropometry for evaluating the height of the individual from the obtained remains of body parts like head, jaws of the human body, etc.
