The phylogenetic changes that have occurred through the process of evolution of human face from the time of earliest ancestors is a matter of great interest for the anthropologists. Various researchers all over the world have extensively studied paleontological remains of previous generations. Face and dentition, in particular, can be indicative of a population’s dietary and social habits as well as climatic conditions. Researchers have aimed to determine the development of the skull, parts of the face, facial features, expressions and their transition from nonhuman primates to modern homo sapiens. The present review attempts to provide an insight pertaining to transitional changes that have happened with respect to various features of human face over time since the time of early ancestors and the observed difference of these features from modern-day human.
