July 24th, 2015: Smile Pretty

No, it's not a hip hop culture grille.



Quote:
Ancient peoples of southern North America went to "dentists"—among the earliest known—to beautify their chompers with notches, grooves, and semiprecious gems, according to a recent analysis of thousands of teeth examined from collections in Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (such as the skull above, found in Chiapas, Mexico).

Scientists don't know the origin of most of the teeth in the collections, which belonged to people living throughout the region, called Mesoamerica, before the Spanish conquests of the 1500s. But it's clear that people—mostly men—from nearly all walks of life opted for the look, noted José Concepción Jiménez, an anthropologist at the institute, which recently announced the findings.

Of course dentistry is much older.
Quote:
An infected tooth partially cleaned with flint tools represents the oldest known dentistry, says a new international study on a 14,000-year-old molar.
The find represents the oldest archaeological example of an operative manual intervention on a pathological condition, according to researchers led by Stefano Benazzi, a paleoanthropologist at the University of Bologna.

Wow. Thats amazing.

I'm even happier now to have a dentist who uses a wonderful little device on me--a nose-only nitrous mask, and he leaves the nitrous running the whole time he works on me. I don't hate dentists, but the combination of sensitive teeth, TMJ, hideous tinnitus that does NOT like the pitch of any of his drills, an easily dislocated jawbone, and anxiety disorder with associated panic attacks makes me a TERRIBLE dental patient. Just looking at the teeth with jewels in them makes the hair on my forearms prickle up! Tattoos I can do, but no fancy dentition. Kudos to the brave, no matter where they find their beauty.

Yeah, no. If I was gonna bedazzle my mouth I would not choose something green.

You're damn right I do! Lookitat.
