First Drills and Fillings

Discussion in 'Primary' started by westcoastmagazine, May 3, 2011.

  1. Drilling the teeth was the most difficult part. The first drills were formed metal bits just hand twisted by the dentist while being pressed against the tooth. This was approximately like whittling away at it with a pocket knife. Other than taking almost forever, being excruciatingly difficult and tiring for the dentist, and being extremely uncomfortable and painful for the patient, it worked great!
