The Sinodont dental complex found in East Asia and the Americas represents a suite of specialized traits (e.g., shoveling, enamel extensions, deflecting wrinkle, 3-rooted lower molars, 4+ cusped lower molars, and missing-peg-reduced UM3).
The TCMT is an important marker in sinodont populations, and with a high frequency in indigenous Colombians between 60% and 100% (9).
The first subdivision, or Sinodont, composed of Northeast Asian populations, is characterized by the addition and enhancement of some TCMTs, such as the shovel-shaped and layered fold incisors, along with the Y6 cusp pattern, the protostylid (cusp forms) and winging.
Edgar (2007) (19) grouped humans into five clusters: the Mongoloid Dental Complex formed by sinodont and sundadont groups; the Caucasoid Dental Complex formed by Western Eurasian groups (Europe, North Africa, Middle East and India); the Saharan African Dental Complex (composed of West African and South African subgroups closer to sundadont populations of the South Pacific), several Pacific groups of Sahul or Oceania and American Paleo-Indians who present frequencies and morphological variations that take them out of the complexes described.
However, an examination of the dentition revealed a Sinodont dental pattern, particularly observable in the female, with an exaggerated shovel-shaped incisor of the Sino-American type.
