ABSTRACT
This article presents a palaeontological review of the evolution of human dentition. The article discusses the process of tooth development in terms of humans and primates, as well as species, families, and evolution. Information is also provided on the use and position of teeth, anthropological research, and fossils.

    Tribosphenic molars of basal marsupials and placentals are a major adaptation, with the protocone (pestle) of the upper molar crushing and grinding in the talonid basin (mortar) on the lower molar. The extinct pseudo-tribosphenic mammals have a reversed tribosphenic molar in which a...
