ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research which was conducted on monkeys in an effort to determine how they developed dental caries. Researchers examined the skulls of monkeys that were located in several museums, including the British Museum and the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Researchers discovered that certain primates are more predisposed to caries than others and that caries development in wild animals differs from caries development in captive ones.
