The most modern treatment methods, which are used today, dental clinics, originated at the dawn of mankind. As it became known that 8 thousand years ago, dental treatment was carried out using the drill. During archaeological sites in Pakistan, archaeologists discovered an ancient human skull in one of the teeth which had been impeccably smooth opening. Studies carried out later, clearly indicated that this could only be done with drills. This finding essentially negated the previously accepted view of scholars. Until now it was thought that the first physician, who defeated caries, was a doctor from Ancient Rome Arhigen, personal Trajan's physician. After all, he is the first in human history as a treatment for an aching tooth hole in the likeness of hand drills.
Methods Arhigena was not accepted, and immediately sank into oblivion. In ancient Egypt caries were treated with application using substances in a state of paste and lapping of materials, as evidenced by historians narytye mummies of pharaohs, and miraculously preserved till our times papyri with recommendations on making medicines for dental caries. In parallel with the ancient Egyptians, the inhabitants of ancient Rome and Greece also worked hard to find freedom from dental disease. According to historians, Avicenna believed the nicest way to escape from caries fumigated patient steaming mixture of onions, henbane and fat goat. But Pliny insisted "on the night when it's full moon, catch a toad splyun her mouth and call intended word." On a par with the method of Pliny actively also used another anti-caries: a clove of garlic around your wrist on the side opposite the tooth with a bad half, and to gain zasun'te shelled by lobules of garlic in each ear.
