Forensic odontology is a branch of dentistry which deals with the identification of an individual based on his/her oral structures. The morphology of tongue is a unique structure that bears both geometric shape as well as physiological texture information that may be a potential tool which can prove useful in identity verification. The benefits of studying tongue morphology and making it a part of biometric identification is because of its genetic independence.The present research was taken over the people to study and analyse the morphological shape and texture of the tongue and to demonstrate it’s importance as an aid in human identification. For the study, clinical examination, photographs and impressions were taken of the tongue. The undertaken study showed a qualitative result among different sex and age groups. It can be concluded that the human tongue promises to deliver a level of uniqueness in shape, texture and is suitable for the use in identity recognition
