Dental age is widely used as a potential predictor of skeletal maturation. The eruption of teeth can be evaluated by the change of deciduous teeth or the stages of development of the teeth.

Aim
The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship of performance athletes with children who do not play sports in terms of chronological age, dental age and skeletal age.

Material and methods
This study was conducted using panoramic and wrist radiographs on a total of 100 people whose ages ranged between 12 and 17. 50 individuals who do sports and those who do not participated in the study. Dental age of all individuals was calculated according to the Demirjian method was used for dental age determination and Fishman method was used for skeletal age determination. In the data, variables was examined by Chi-Square analysis, and it was stated that there was a significant difference if p <0.05.

Results
There was no difference in the comparison of dental age and chronological age in both sex groups (p> 0.05). There is a positive correlation between chronological age and skeletal age, dental age dental age and skeletal age in both sex groups.

Conclusion
In this study, it does not show that there is a relationship between chronological age of sports and evaluation methods of both dental and skeletal structure.
