Demirjian 7-teeth method is a gold standard for dental age estimation (DAE) so it has been simplified to a comprehensive chart (DAEcc) to make it user-friendly. This pilot study aimed to assess applicability and usefulness of DAEcc. 250 OPGs (130 men, 120 women, 5–15 years) were evaluated for DAE in the North Indian population using DAEcc and compared it to chronological age. Results showed a positive correlation between chronological age and estimated age (Correlation = 0.9; P < 0.001). However, like the original Demirjian 7-teeth method here also a slight overestimation of age was there but DAEcc is a more time-efficient method.
