Bite me Keith Simpson launches the science of bite mark analysis when he examines bite marks on a dead woman.

Forensic Pathologist Keith Simpson

In 1948 Simpson used Forensic odontology to seal a murder conviction against Robert Gorringe who killed his wife Phyllis. This was the first instances where evidence through forensic odontology was used in the english court. Since she died quickly the bite mark left the bite mark was not distorted.

Today forensic dentistry is used today to handle, examine, and evaluate dental evidence which can be presented through a bite mark or research through finding teeth and whom they may belong to. They are most commonly needed when human remains are found and they cannot be identified by facial features or finger prints.
