Ancient tooth reveals evidence of pre-historic human dentistry

New evidence suggests dentistry can be dated back to ancient civilisation!

An ancient tooth uncovered in Slovenia has provided insight into early dental practise, of which evidence has been extremely sparse with only a few other similar cases reported. The tooth dates back over 6,500 years and shows traces of beeswax as an attempt at filling a dental cavity which had caused a vertical crack in the enamel and layers of the tooth.
