How did teeth help make us human?

200 million years ago, give or take, we began developing the kinds of teeth it would take to chew our way to today.

That chewing began, we are told by Professor Peter Ungar, when mammals developed molars which provided for the critical chewing, crushing teeth that opened a whole world of eating possibilities for our ancestors.

But wait, just how do scientists like Dr. Ungar know what happened 200 million years ago?

That is part of the story, as we journey back– way back– to the beginnings of our journey from mammal to hominid to humans with all the tools of modern science to help separate fact from fiction.

And by the way, did cave men and women eat a paleo diet, or did they eat whatever they could catch?

    Dr. Ungar, Hi! Can you comment on how our primitive ancestors cared for their teeth? Did they have bad breath? What are some of the earliest evidence of attempts at dental work?
