Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Modern Dentistry

Dentistry up to the last ten years made little or no advance along the lines of Health Conservation. For two thousand years dentistry has been devising collectors of filth and spreaders of general disease. The Roman, who strapped loose necrotic teeth to firm teeth with gold bands, defied the laws of health and cleanliness no more than many of our bridge workers of the present day. The dentist of the seventh century, in putting in gold fillings, to all intents and purposes used the same method as that of the soft-gold worker of the twentieth century.

Dentistry, owing to the teachings of Pasteur, has at last awakened to its great responsibility. Henceforth no appliance, however beautiful externally, will be tolerated unless it can be kept absolutely clean, and no repair of a tooth or root will be countenanced unless it conforms to the standards of scientific mouth hygiene. Fillings, crowns, and bridges are no longer to be considered mere objects of art for personal adornment or mechanical trituration of food, they must primarily be hygienic.

Through the elimination of mouth infection, and of much con sequent systemic disease, dentistry must take a place in the fore most ranks of preventive medicine. Dentists henceforth must be trained along medical lines, and any contention that has existed in the past between the physician and dentist must disappear in a common endeavor to free the community at large from the deadly effects of mouth infection. For this disease is now recognized as an almost universal one that every year kills its victims directly or indirectly by the hundreds of thousands, and it is the author's hope that this book will be of some service in its cure and prevention.
