Description

The Influence of Teeth, Diet, and Habits on the Human Face discusses the relation between dental health, diet, and habits to the facial characteristics of humans. The book is comprised of 12 chapters that cover the various aspects of the relationship of the said variables. The text first compares the facial traits of primitives and civilized peoples, and then proceeds to differentiating the characteristics of primitive and modern diets. The next chapter discusses disparity between meat and vegetable diet. The next five chapters deal topics related to dental health, such as tooth diseases among primitive tribes, establishing racial links through analyzing teeth, and some unusual dental customs. The remaining three chapters present the conclusion, review of related literature, and methodology of the study. The book will be of great interest to dentists, physicians, anthropologists, and sociologists.
