Dental prosthetics have been known since BC.

  • During the excavations of the ancient city of Sidon (III-IV centuries BC), artificial teeth were also found in the woman’s coffin, which could be called the prototype of modern bridges. Fastening of artificial teeth with gold wire, as well as threads from other materials, are among the earliest methods of fixing prostheses.
  • In the tombs of the Etruscans (IX-VI centuries BC), more modern gold prostheses were found, reinforced with gold rings or stripes. In the Roman Laws of the Twelve Tables (5th century BC), there are indications of the use of gold wire for splinting.
  • The 11th century Arab physician Abulkasem (936-1013) rightly assessed dental prosthetics as a medical science.
  • Giovani Arkone (early 15th century) filled cavities with sheet gold.
  • Ambroise Paré (1517-1590, Paris) is a 16th century surgeon – he replaced missing teeth with artificial ones made of bovine or ivory, reinforcing them with gold wire. He made the first attempt to replace the defects of the hard palate with an obturator.
  • In 1728 – Pierre Fauchard’s guide to dentistry “Dental surgery or a treatise on teeth” was published. He was responsible for the development of a method for attaching complete removable dentures with springs, he improved the palatal obturator by connecting it to the prosthesis.
