This post from The Dental Design Center in White Plains takes a brief look at the history of dentistry, and how certain developments have brought us to where we are today.
It has now been over 150 years since the first dental license was issued to Sir John Tomes. New York dental patients should be grateful for the advances made in dentistry during the past century and a half.
There was a time when White Plains 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!
At The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S., we celebrate with the White Plains dental community and marvel at the many advances made in the history of dentistry, particularly cosmetic dentistry.
One of the modern treatments that has helped countless White Plains patients is invisible braces. This non-visible 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.
I am cosmetic dentist Ira Handschuh. My training didn’t end when I graduated from dental school and opened my practice in White Plains. As a cutting-edge dentist, I continually seek training so I can expertly perform the latest procedures. In addition, our practice uses the most advanced dental materials available.
