Publisher's Summary

For centuries, the mouth and the body have been disconnected - at least when it comes to health care. Through the Middle Ages and beyond, teeth fell under the care of barbers, who could shave a customer and pull a molar with equal skill. In the 1700s, French surgeon Pierre Fauchard published the Treatise on Teeth, establishing dentistry as its own science.

"Down in the Mouth" is from the April 16, 2016 issue of Science News.
