The study of dental morphology or odontoscopy implies the process of registration, analysis, and understanding of all the information that coronal and radicular morphology of the teeth may reveal about biological relations among populations due to their function as intergroup markers that enable comparative analyses to establish the history, origins, formation, contacts, isolation, and displacement of past and current human groups.
