Abstract: AIM AND OBJECTIVE:To compare the palatal rugae pattern between dentulous males and females of different age groups among the Chennai population.The individuality of a palatal rugae as an aid for personal identification was an objective of this study. BACKGROUND: Palatal rugae are asymmetrical irregular elevations of dense connective tissues located on the anterior third of the palate extending on either side of the mid palatine raphae, behind the incisive papilla.The uniqueness of the palatal rugae suggest their important role in personal identification. METHODOLOGY:The study group was equally divided between the sexes,50 males and 50 females.The primary impressions were made using an irreversible hydrocolloid alginate impression material in a perforated tray .The impression is washed under tap water and the study cast was prepared with dental stone(Type 3gypsum products).From the primary cast, number, shape and length of the Palatal rugae were analysed. RESULT:From this study, males are having higher number of rugae than females. 64.6% of the females are having the rugae size in the range between 5-10 mm whereas only 62.1% are having the rugae within that range. According to shape of the rugae, 46.1% of females are having wavy rugae and 47.5% of ,males are having curvy rugae.Howeverchi-square test observed no statistical differences between males and females with respect to length and shape of the rugae.
