This study examines dental pathologies of human skeletal materials uncovered at the Early Bronze Age levels
of Oylum Höyük, located in the central district of Kilis province. Materials subjected to this research were
unearthed between 1989-2004 excavation seasons, and consists of 96 individuals. This research demonstrates
that the population includes 31 infants (32.29%), 17 children (17.71%), 20 female (20.83%), 18 male (18.75%)
and 10 adults of unknown gender (10.42%). 428 deciduous and 953 permanent teeth are identified summing
up the total number of teeth to 1381. The dental caries, linear enamel hypoplasias and dental calculus are
calculated as 0.71%, 2.42% and 33.89%, respectively in deciduous teeth. The dental caries, dental calculus,
linear enamel hypoplasias, abscesses and antemortem tooth losses are determined as 7.94%, 90.13%, 34.01%,
3.30% and 5.10% respectively in adult individuals. Periodental disease appears in all 21 examined individuals.
Dental attrition score is found as 3.04. These finds lead an interpretation of Oylum Höyük population as
a traditional agricultural society during the Early Bronze Age mostly consuming cereals after making fine
ground flour. There is evidence about infants, which have consumed complementary foodstuffs when at the
age of 1 and 1.5. Our data also demonstrates individuals who have been exposed crucial environmental stress
affecting their growth process between 0-6 of age.
