CARE OF THE TEETH
fectiool authorities ere greatly Inter
ested in various plans lor improve
ment in the minds of back-ward pupils
by improving the condition or their
bodies. Now they have become Im
bued with the iCcs. that cJecn n-GJtliS
mean healthy pupils, and the exam
ination of the te?th of school chil
dren is the latest thing under consideration.
I ents as a rale are entirely ignorant
on tie scfcject. It vould seeai that
this must be looked up in our public
schools. "We are supposed to have
medical inspection in the schools,
which i6 all good as far as It goes,
but it is not broad enough. It does
ret take in the teeth, at least the ex
aminer commonly ignores that part
of it: yet any physician knows the
Investigation In Germany shows i jreat importance that mastication
that nearly SO rver cent of the sohool
children have diseased teth and sta
tistics show conclusively thai:
1. On account of had teeth the
physical development of the child 13
2. The more the physical develop
ment is disturbed, the lets in general
Is the mental capacity of the child.
3. The worse the teeth, the worse,
as a rule. Is the school standing.
Abont 500 pupils in the schools of
Ludlow, Mass., were recently exam
ined and the condition of the teeth
and mouth found most deplorab'e.
The most striking feature observed
was the neglect of dental cleanliness
and absence cf any evidence of den
tal treatment beyond a few instances
In which teeth had been extracted.
Probably not more than three out of
one hundred possessed brushes, and
showed signs of using them regularly,
and these three were practically free
from decay. Bacterial deposits, tar
tar, remains of food end every de
gree of maJodorousness and poisoning
Many children were suffering from
tmdoe retention of temporary teeth,
but still more from the premature
loes of them, showing the utter neg
lect by tie parents of the first set
of teeth, which from a dentist's stAid
point 1b most Important.
The first permanent molar was In
variably badly decayed. Probably 50
per cent, would have to be treated or
extracted. This molar is very confus
ing to parents and children, as It
comes before the temporary teeth are
shed and Is therefore taken for one of
the first set. and neglected from ig
norance. It Is evident from this Inspection
that something most be done. First
of all. the public must be convinced
that such a movement Is for the pub
The disastrous aesults from a lack
of knowldge on the subject of oral
hygiene are seen on every hand. Suf
fering humanity need6 more thought
upon the subject and needs It badly,
because out future health and happi
ness to a great extent derend upon it.
How can we beet accomplish a den
tal education among the masses of
the people? Dentists cannot get at
the masses of children growing up
around ua to teach them, and the par-
city. The meeting conducted routine
business and in. addition listened to

In some of the rains of Egypt are
eneravings representing a man lying
on his back, while another is standing
over him pounding out a tooth with
a rock. This is primitive dentistry,
and while It might seem to be severe,
yet, no doubt, it brought a measure
of relief, otherwise such extreme
measures would not have been resort
In China, It Is said, when a man
goes to the native dentist for relief
from the toothache, it is the usual
procedure for the dentist to insert
his finger in the patient's mouth, and,
on removing it, sfco-y him a worm
which he says he has withdrawn
from the tooth, ard which was caus
ing the ache. This procedure, so we
are told, usually stops the ache.
These primitive methods are a far
cry from the scientific attitude of the
profession today, yet most of the im
provement has been brought about In
the last 100 years.
The causes of this rapid develop
ment have been many, the rapid
growth of knowledge in other lines
of work, the formation of dental col
leges, the invention and manufacture
of useful Instruments, and the scien
tific study of the mouth and its dis
eases. There Is one other thing which has
brought about this marvelous growth,
which is perhaps more important
than all the other causes combined,
and that Is the professional spirit, or
dental ethics, as It is Eometimes
It used to be the thing, if a den-

a secret, or invention, has died with
the dentist originating it. In time
this custom was changed, and then
the profession began to progress by
leaps and bounds. Nowadays, if a
dentist discovers anything new that
is good, he carries It to his society
and explains it to every one, so that
all may get the benefit. He goes to
the convention with one new idea and
brines back a hundred, and both he
and he public are benefited.
