J Hist Dent Spring 2018;66(1):25-35

Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore.

Charles Darwin suffered relapsing, debilitating illness for most of his adult life with many symptoms. His most prominent complaints were episodic nausea, retching and vomiting. As is common in patients with repeated vomiting he developed dental problems, problems that may be dated back to his voyage on the Beagle and his vomiting due to persistent seasickness. Read More

Put a Frog in Your Mouth: Toothache 'Cures' from Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Ireland.

J Hist Dent Spring 2018;66(6):14-24

School of Nursing and Human Science, Dublin City University.

During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, toothache must have been a common complaint in Ireland, to judge from the number of toothache 'cures' reported as part of The Schools' Collection (SC) or 'Bailiúchán na Scol', a folklore-collecting scheme that was undertaken in the Irish Republic in 1937 and 1938, and upon which this article is based. These cures range from quasi-medical treatments, such as packing the affected tooth with tobacco, to more folkloric, or magico-religious cures, such as licking a frog or pulling out a tooth from a corpse, as well as herbal and mineral remedies.

The Medicare Chronic Disease Dental Scheme: Historical, Scientific, Socio-political Origins.

Metro North Hospital and Health Service, Queensland Health, Brisbane, Australia.

While evidence and expert opinion are the foundations of effective policy, the politics, economics, and timing of a proposal can affect outcome. Australian government involvement in the planning, funding and delivery of dental services has been minimal and inconsistent. Many believe that the hybrid dispersal model of shared constitutional power has intermittently led to poor administration of national health policy. Read More

Historical Perspectives on the Use of Microscopes in Dentistry.

Authors:
James L Gutmann

J Hist Dent 2017 ;65(1):20-27

American Board of Endodontics.

The use of microscopes in dentistry has become quite popular since the late 1980s. However, its origin for dental applications can be traced to the early 20th century, when a microscope, invented by an American biologist named Greenough, working in the Zeiss Company, was adapted for use in dentistry. Initially it had been used in botany, metallurgy, and zoology, in addition to revolutionizing the study of coral and entomology. Read More

Origins of the Electronic Apex Locator - Achieving Success with Strict Adherence to Business.

Authors:
James L Gutmann

J Hist Dent 2017 ;65(1):2-6

American Board of Endodontics.

Current history would have you believe that the evolution and development of the electronic apex locator for use during root canal procedures emanated from the work of Suzuki in 1942, which was developed as a product by Sunada in 1962. Yes, this is partly correct, however the concept of using electrical means to locate the ends of root canals was brought to the dental profession as early as 1918 by Dr. Levitt Ellsworth Custer, which was not addressed until Suzuki revisited Custer's concepts.

Finding Small Root Canals.

Authors:
James L Gutmann

J Hist Dent 2016 ;64(1):14

American Board of Endodontics.

One of the main reasons for failure of teeth that have been root treated is the inability to locate and clean canals that are very small or not identified by the clinician. In contemporary practice the use of dyes, such as methylene blue, or magnificatin, such as the microscope are used rotinely in these situations to find the canal orifice in the pulp chamber. Prior to this, other more aggressive methods have been used, such as that identified in 1920. Read More

Cystic Conditions of the jawbones: A Review of Early Classification Systems.

J Hist Dent 2015 Summer-Fall;63(2):67-71

Cystic conditions of the jawbones were recognized long before the establishment of the American Academy of Oral Pathology (AAOP) in 1948, but it was around this time when they were studied, characterized, and classified. The history of the classification systems implemented by oral pathologists to study the cystic conditions of the maxillary bones is intimately related with the birth of oral and maxillofacial pathology as a specialty of dentistry. The purpose of this paper is to review the early classification systems proposed for the cystic conditions of the jawbones. Read More

Dental Items of Interest: The Case of Delphic Sibyl by Michelangelo: Solitary Median Maxillary Central Incisor or Mesiodens.

J Hist Dent 2015 Summer-Fall;63(2):65-6

A case of an anomaly in the maxillary dental arch on "Delphic Sibyl," a fresco by Michelangelo is reported. An accurate analysis of this fresco shows a single incisor tooth is present precisely in the midline. We hypothesize that it may be a case of solitary median maxillary central incisor (SMMCI) and discuss the differential diagnosis with another similar anomaly--the mesiodens. Read More

The fluoridation of municipal water as a preventive dental health measure has proven to be a contentious issue from its very outset. In 1952, Baltimore became the first major city in the United States to artificially add fluoride to its water supply. This study draws largely on print media sources as a means of discerning public sentiment, in order to evaluate the nature of Baltimore's fluoride controversy in its infancy. Read More

Various contemporary efforts have been advocated to strengthen root-treated teeth to prevent fracture; or to manage teeth that exhibit fractures. These efforts have favored the use of newer, adhesive materials, incorporating horizontally transfixed fiberglass posts to stabilize the fractured segments. Results have been encouraging, as teeth tested have exhibited fracture resistance similar to that found with onlays. Read More
