Did Ancient Humans Have Any Modern Dental Issues?

Yes.

Cavities!

The modern diet’s use of refined sugars and carbs has been connected to cavities in our teeth, but what about before modern agriculture? Homo naledi, one of our ancient relatives dating back nearly 700,000 years, apparently also had cavities likely being attributed to their diet of fruits, veggies, and honey! In fact, cavities have now been found in nearly every prehistoric hominid species.
