L'auteur rapporte les resultats de recherches en pathologie dentaire effectuees sur des representants des populations prehistoriques du subcontinent indien, afin de determiner les variations de taux de caries, et de maladies dentaires en general selon que l'individu est de sexe feminin ou masculin, et d'identifier la nature de ces differences 

Gender differences in oral health in South Asia: Metadata imply multifactorial biological and cultural causes

TLDR
South Asia was selected for study because sex differences in caries rates exist in prehistory here, great cultural diversity provides context, and clinical reports document caries by gender.

USING DENTAL CARIES AS A NUTRITIONAL INDICATOR TO EXPLORE POTENTIAL DIETARY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SEXES IN AN ANCIENT GREEK POPULATION

TLDR
This study provides valuable data for the population of Almyros and highlights the significance of caries degree and caries locations in reconstructing diets of ancient populations.

TLDR
This study provides valuable data for the population of Almyros and highlights the significance of caries degree and caries locations in reconstructing diets of ancient populations.

TLDR
This study documents sex differences in dental caries prevalence among Late to Final Jomon period foragers from Japan and interprets the results within behavioral, dietary, and reproductive context.

The usefulness of caries frequency, depth, and location in determining cariogenicity and past subsistence: a test on early and later agriculturalists from the Peruvian coast.

TLDR
Comparisons of oral pathology among four pre-Columbian groups with different degrees of agricultural and socio-cultural development but comparable ecological conditions on the coastal desert of Peru recommend that caries depth and locations should be used with evaluations of dental wear to reconstruct subsistence in ancient populations.

Making sense of medieval mouths: Investigating sex differences of dental pathological lesions in a late medieval Italian community.

TLDR
Results are discussed in relation to the ethnohistoric context of medieval rural dietary practices as well as biomedical salivary literature, which suggest that dietary changes throughout the life course may have facilitated trade-offs that buffered females from higher rates of dental pathological lesions.

Sex differences in dental caries experience: clinical evidence, complex etiology

TLDR
Women's oral health declines more rapidly than men's with the onset of agriculture and the associated rise in fertility, and tooth loss in women is greater than in men and has been linked to caries and parity.
