Long before the modern age of dentistry, oral issues presented a terrifying scenario. They were treated in a variety of ways including extraction, arsenic, bloodletting, and artificial replacements. The only common element to treatment was excruciating pain.
Thankfully, largely due to technology and books, dentistry has progressed and evolved into a more pleasant and less painful experience. Without a doubt, dentistry illustrations have proven to be an indispensable reference for students and clinicians alike.
