San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2012 -- Dentistry has been around for thousands of years. Researchers have found that prehistoric men were drilling holes in patients’ teeth between 5500 and 7000 BC. It is believed that these early dentists used flint drill tips to access hard-to-reach molars, although the exact reason for doing this is unknown.
The first person to be identified as a dental practitioner was Hesy-Re, an Egyptian scribe who died in 2600 BC. By 100 BC, a Roman medical writer called Celsus had written extensively about oral hygiene, treatments for toothache and stabilizing loose teeth. The first gold crowns and fixed bridgework were used by the Etruscans in the second century AD and by 700 AD the Chinese were using a type of amalgam silver paste for fillings.
Luckily dentistry has improved in leaps and bounds since then and advanced technology means patients no longer need to have unsightly silver fillings. Cosmetic dentistry has become increasingly popular and people living in and around the City of Henderson in Nevada have been taking advantage of the services on offer from Galleria Family Dental.
