Shovel-shaped incisors - Wikipedia
But what about Asian teeth? Well, that trait is called sinodonty and here's a nice wiki article and another nice article, with examples, here. Things other than race or nationality can affect teeth. When I saw a dental specialist for a root canal, he asked, “So, who in your family had a bad cleft palate ?. Lingual view of a non-shovel-shaped incisor (left) and a shovel-shaped incisor ( right). Occlusal .. the genetic basis of shovel-shaped incisors in Asian modern human populations, which impact of chronometric dating.

Is Nanjing Man the ancestor of the modern Chinese? Xu Hankui, a researcher from the Nanjing Paleontology Institute, who discovered the fossil remains of Nanjing Man, also supports the hypothesis of multi-regional evolution. When fossilized skulls of Nanjing Man were discovered by peasants exploring an ancient lava cave, Nanjing Paleontology Institute sent several experts on a field trip.
Xu was among them and participated in the study of the fossils. Xu Hankui shows the restoration of the skulls of Nanjing Man.
Later, the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology showed that one of the skulls was of a 21 to year-old women who livedyears ago and suffered from a bone disease called periostitis. Another skull was from a male somewhere in the transitional phase between Homo erectus to Homo sapiens.
Are Chinese descendants of an African Eve?
Xu Hankui believes that the Nanjing Man finds are evidence of multi-regional evolution. The puzzle of Chinese people's shovel-shaped front teeth One of the puzzles that the out-of-Africa theory needs to account for is the prevalence of shovel-shaped front teeth among the modern Chinese population. Xing Song says the distinctively-shaped teeth are prevalent in the Mongoloid race in East Asia.
Licking their inside front teeth, Chinese people will find that there's a dent in their upper teeth while the surfaces of the lower ones are even.
From the inside, the upper teeth look like shovels. According to Xing, these peculiarly shaped teeth were inherited in a continuous line from early Chinese hominids. About 80 percent of Chinese have such upper front teeth in contrast to only 5 percent of Europeans and 10 percent of Africans. Xing says this is strong evidence of the continuity of human evolution in China.

Moreover, hominid fossils in China share the same facial features: You will see two letters comprised of either T, A, C or G. If you have a G shown for either letter at this location, then you carry this particular mutation. But what about Asian teeth?
If your teeth are shovel shaped, meaning the backs of your upper 4 teeth are shaped like a spoon as opposed to straight, then you have this trait. So are you wondering what this might have to do with genetic genealogy? Well, if you carry this gene, then you obtained it from some Asian ancestor.
One would be Native American ancestry and the second would be the population or invasion of Europe by Asian groups, such as the Mongol Hordes and the Huns. Your genealogy will have to be your guide as to which source contributed this gene to your ancestors, and ultimately to you.
