  1. There's a dentist in Tarpon Springs who is very fascinated with ancient dentistry cause he said there are similarities with the way they perform the method of pulling off the teeth and preserving it as well.I really find that weird but educating.

  2. Interesting, that means there had been past experiments on tooth restoration just like the dental implants in Las Vegas, tooth removal and tooth restoration. I recognize that ancient people uses their practicality in their everyday life to address to all the problems they're encountering.

  4. And that is a reminder of why getting a new york teeth whitening session is better than having to wait till it becomes an extraction session.

  5. So that means, dental treatments were already available at that time. I think seo for dentists should also do some research about this case to be able to inform other people who are interested in this kind of study.

  6. It's not surprising that there exist medical practices in ancient times. What surprises me, is to know the procedure on how they are doing a certain kind of medical/dental operation.

  7. I wonder if how ancient Egyptian deals with having a TMJ disorder. I mean, what are the remedies they are doing to alleviate the pain of having that disorder.

  8. It's interesting to note how ancient egyptian dentistry went about through this case. That they already reached the point where they managed to develop primitive methods of dental fillings is interesting to note, history-wise. I can't say the same for the poor guy in the story, though.

    1. I must agree, they did a pretty good job in scanning the dental filling of the Egyptian. But it's confusing knowing that the man died due to cavities. I doubt that!
