The Wikipedia article for polyphyodont says this:
Although most extant mammals are not polyphyodont, mammalian ancestors were. During the evolution of Therapsida, there was a period during which mammals were so small and short-lived that wear on the teeth yielded no significant selection pressure to constantly replace them.
...which was a bit surprising at first, but makes sense. So I'm wondering - have any species evolved in the opposite direction? In other words, have there been any non-polyphyodont species which have teeth, and evolved into polyphyodonts?
