Presence of 25 dental traits in a sample of pre-conquest mature skulls kept in Museo de La Plata (Argentina) has been analyzed. Both arches upper and lower and all permanent dental pieces has been registred, except third molars. This study establish dental morphology patterns from a statistical point of view. We conluded that statistical frequences show high similarity with populations associated to mongoloid dental complex and move away of European and African populations
