Excerpt from Johnstons' Dental Miscellany, 1880, Vol. 7: A Monthly Journal of American and Foreign Dental, Surgical, Chemical and Mechanical Literature
Specific medication implies a specific diagnosis. A correct diagnosis means but little without a knowledge of a remedy. For ... the wrong life found to be present. If the diagnosis goes no further than to give the wrong condition a name, it amounts to but little. In order to gain the advantage to be derived from a careful and correct diagnosis, a knowledge of a remedy must follow. This, however, must be a task for each indi vidual to undertake for himself; and it will afford him a life-long study and a field for the closest observation and investigation.
If you will permit me to cite one or two cases in practice that illus trate, 1n part, that to which I have endeavored to call your attention, I will weary you no longer.
The first was of a young lady of exceedingly nervous temperament. Among several other teeth, I filled, after several days of treatment and patient waiting for favorable conditions, a superior cuspid, including the pulp cavity. Other work remained to be done; but I dismissed her for several days, to await developments, not daring to aggravate her ner vous sensibilities further by continuing work upon other teeth. I gave her such instructions as precautionary measures seemed to require, in case of any uneasiness about the tooth.
