Children with chronic renal failure are known to lag behind normal children for both height achievement and bone age. In the present study, dental maturity was assessed by scoring dental panoramic tomographs using two methods. The method of Dermirjian gave closer estimates of the chronological age than that of Leinonen. With the former method, dental maturity was found to be slightly delayed in children with chronic renal failure, although this was not statistically significant.
