Evolution of Dental Technology
The core of dentistry is based on the use of technology in the field of dentistry for research and development.
In the 11th century, before the publication of the first comprehensive textbook of dental science, Fauchard’s Le Chirurgien Dentiste, as early as 1728, dentistry was performed by various craftsmen, mainly hairdressers and wig makers, Blood pen, goldsmith, and blacksmith. other. Although they did not receive formal academic training, these medieval practitioners possessed unique skills and used specialized tools to remove, repair, and replace the hardest tissues in the body.
How did it start?
The evolution of dentistry is really widespread. It can be traced back to 1092 is the time when Alexander Cyril II issued a law ordering that religious preachers such as priests and monks would have a new style of grooming, shaved faces, and unique hairstyles. To follow this new norm. The Pope invited razors and knives for hairdressers and blood removers to undertake this task effectively. Thus budding surgical profession include the use of razors, spears, and scissors by the barbers and had given rise to barber-surgeons. Next to follow came the use of a scalpel.
Pastors can read the medical literature and become doctors, but they are not allowed to have blood on their hands, so invasive intervention is not allowed. The ban on bloodletting and surgery by physician priests began in 1163 when Pope Alexander III declared it part of the itinerant council: “Churches hate evil.” Loose translation method. So in the past, there were many restrictions in the manner dentistry evolved.
“Bleeding is inconsistent with the priest’s holy behavior towards God.” This was the beginning of the separation of doctors and surgeons, and the life of the department is about 800 years. This separation can still be seen in the names of ancient institutions.
In the early medieval pecking order, barbers were not only ranked lower than doctors with formal education but also ranked higher in medieval France. The term “robe surgeon” refers to a person who has received academic training to distinguish it from a barber or “short robe surgeon.” Academically trained surgeons are located among the highest priests
The barber society and the bottom. However, the low status of barbers did not prevent the king and queen from using them in military ground battles and long sea voyages. They gained experience in treating wounded soldiers and sailors.
One of the earliest and most famous is Ambroise Paré (1510-1590), the barber of the four French kings who used ligation instead of hot oil to burn wounds. Before Paré’s innovation, it was thought that pouring hot boiling oil on the wound without anesthesia could “clean up” the gunpowder and become a toxic gunshot wound. After such strict treatment, many soldiers died of shock and sepsis. Known as the “Gentle Surgeon”, Paré invented the use of soothing wound dressings, thereby reducing the pain caused by hot oil and greatly improving wound healing and survival.
With the advancement of science and technology, dental science has been greatly developed in modern times.
