This post from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH takes a brief look at the history of our profession.
It has now been over 150 years since the first dental license was issued to Sir John Tomes. New Hampshire dental patients should be grateful for the advances made in dentistry during the past century and a half.
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. Sometimes these untrained practitioners got careless, and broke the jaws of the person they were trying to help. Ouch!
We’ve come a long way since then. One of the modern treatments that has helped countless people are clear braces. They are custom made for each patient. They are transparent and removable and will help you achieve your desired smile in about 3 to 18 months.
