  • The existence of sexual dimorphism in the size of the permanent teeth is a well-known attribute of primates, particularly so for the canine teeth, in which the magnitude of the sex difference in the mesiodistal crown diameter may equal 50 percent or even more. However, little attention has been given until recently to the extent of sexual dimorphism in the remaining teeth of various primates and to variations in the magnitude of sexual dimorphism and the patterning of sexual dimorphism in… CONTINUE READING
