Dental history and superstitions
Dentistry has been around for thousands of years, predating even the earliest medical texts. Surgical and dental implements are known from the Roman period, including a matching set of ten silver instruments, which was sold at auction in London in 1980.
The Ancient Greek philosopher and scientist, Aristotle, describes a dental forceps made for extracting diseased teeth. However, he also believed that men had more teeth than women. Another famous Greek physician, Galen, who was himself troubled by toothache, understood that saliva was used for breaking down food in the mouth, although he also thought that human saliva could rapidly destroy scorpions! A recent archaeological discovery of an Iron Age woman’s grave in Northern France revealed the earliest known dental implant in all of Western Europe.
