Teeth and History
believed that a mixture of onion, spices and incense would cure a toothache.
In the 9th century,
filed their teeth into different shapes and decorated them with jewels.
In the 1500s, people would get their hair cut, wounds treated and
by their barber! (Unfortunately, not many teeth were actually saved back in those days.)
In the early 1600s, Japanese women
their teeth to show loyalty to their husbands.
