Horrific Dental Equipment From Days Gone By

The history of dentistry is almost as ancient as the history of humanity and civilization with the earliest evidence dating from 7000 BC. Remains from the early Harappan periods of the Indus Valley Civilization (c. 3300 BC) show evidence of teeth having been drilled dating back 9,000 years.


This is what dental equipment looked like in the past. Pretty scary, right?
