    Aim: This study aims to determine the sex of an individual using various parameters of mandible. Materials and Methods: This study was carried out in the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals, Chennai. Fifty adult dry human mandibles were taken. Out of these 50 mandibles, 25 mandibles were male and 25 mandibles were female. Using Vernier caliper, several geometric and morphometric parameters of the mandible such as bigonial distance, bicondylar distance, and mandible length, the study has been done. Results and Discussion: The mean of the male in all the three parameters considered was to be higher when compared to female. Standard deviation of male was higher in bigonial distance and the bicondylar distance and in female, standard deviation of mandible length was higher. Conclusion: The geometric and morphological parameters of mandible such as bigonial distance, bicondylar distance, and the mandible length are very useful to determine the sex.
