Bite Wounds

Periodic requests come down for information on bite wounds in living patients. However, there are caveats to this one— research is only included that was applicable to the work of clinicians. Any of the research on bite mark impressions and the challenges to that science are not included here (no disrespect to our forensic odontology colleagues, but that’s a very different area of science). Contained here are articles related to identifying, managing, sampling and documenting bite wounds in the living patient.
