This post from Neal C. Johnson DMD in Billings takes a look back at the unusual history of dentistry.
It has been over 150 years since the first dental license was issued to Sir John Tomes. We should all be grateful for the advances made in dentistry in the years since then.
There was a time when blacksmiths and wig makers would also extract teeth with forceps to make a little extra money. Anyone could call themselves a dentist. Often these untrained people broke the jaws of the person they were trying to help. Ouch!
One of the modern treatments that has helped countless people is clear braces. This orthodontic therapy is custom made for each patient. They are transparent and removable and will help you achieve your desired smile in about 3 to 18 months.
