Background: The individual age as documented in the birth certificate shall be authorized as a chronological age. In several countries, falsification of documents relating to an individual age is becoming a major problem, since it is correlated with monetary, marriage, and education matter. Forensic dentistry works to minimize the possibility of individual age falsification by studying the tooth developmental stages. The objective of this study is to observe the applicability of the third molar development related to the biological age. Materials and Methods: A total of 93 OPG (orthopantomogram) of subjects (16 – 23 years old) from the Java population were involved in this study. Third molar developmental stages of the mandibular were evaluated using the Demirjian et al. method. The statistical analysis was carried out using IBM® SPSS® Statistics version 23.0 (IBM, Armonk, NY, USA). Results and Conclusion: The result showed that the average Java population reached the final stage at an average age of 21 ± 1,39 years in females and 20 ± 1,9 years in males. The present study indicates that the development of mandibular third molar is slightly earlier in males than in females. Besides, Demirjian’s method is considered as a reliable method for dental age estimation in the Java population.
