Bitemarks

Human bitemark in skin showing an overall oval shape, opposing arch-shaped patterns, interrupted linear injury patterns, individual tooth marks demontrating class characteristics, and central contusion. This bitemark is of high evidentiary value. Marks made by maxillary teeth are at the top. The straight linear patterns at the lower left were not caused by teeth.
