Abstract: Aim of the present study is to indicate the factors contributing in changes of the formation and deposition of root dentine which results in translucency of the root dentine. The root dentine translucency of human teeth is already proved to be a significant process in age estimation, since the creation of sclerotic dentine is strictly related with the aging of the individual. Different factors seem to affect this deposition with the environmental, one playing the most significant extraneous factor, changing the rate and type of creation of translucent root dentine. The mechanical factors are analyzed in order to imprint all the factors that may interfere with the deposition process and as a result in the proper age estimation.
