DESIGN OF A DENTAL CLINIC

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Tooth decay was low in pre-agricultural societies, but the rise of farming societies around 10,000 years ago coincided with an increase in the rate of cavities. The oldest known dentistry is an infected tooth from Italy that was partially cleaned with flint tools and dates between 13,820 and 14,160 years old. Evidence of dentistry being practiced dates back to 7000 BC, according to the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). According to an IVC site in Mehrgarh, this type of dentistry involved treating tooth disorders with bow drills, possibly operated by skilled bead crafters. The reconstruction of this ancient form of dentistry demonstrated that the methods employed were both reliable and effective. The oldest dental filling, made of beeswax, was discovered in Slovenia 6500 years ago…
