Dental paleopathology has become an excellent discipline to reconstruct the oral health of ancient populations and its trend from the past to the present day, especially regarding dietary habits. Our preliminary research aims to perform a comparative analysis on dental health status of two widely chronologically distant samples from Sardinia: the first one dates back to the Copper Age (III mill. B.C.) and comes from a collective hypogean burial named Scab’e Arriu (Siddi, SU), the second one is composed by extracted teeth of present-day individuals, collected during some traineeships at the Department of Surgical Science of the Dentistry School, in Cagliari.

Abstract

Dental paleopathology has become an excellent discipline to reconstruct the oral health of ancient populations and its trend from the past to the present day, especially regarding dietary habits. Our preliminary research aims to perform a comparative analysis on dental health status of two widely chronologically distant samples from Sardinia: the first one dates back to the Copper Age (III mill. B.C.) and comes from a collective hypogean burial named Scab’e Arriu (Siddi, SU), the second one is composed by extracted teeth of present-day individuals, collected during some traineeships at the Department of Surgical Science of the Dentistry School, in Cagliari.
