People have suffered from toothaches throughout history. Before the advent of modern medicine there was no scientific explanation for dental decay, and certainly no 94523 dentist to call in a dental emergency. Instead, for thousands of years people believed that dental decay and toothaches were caused by “tooth worms” that would burrow into teeth and take root, causing tooth decay and extreme pain. The first known mention of tooth worms comes from a 5,000-year-old Sumerian clay tablet, but the tooth worm has a long history throughout much of the world, with references also appearing in Egypt, China, India and medieval Europe.
Since then, thankfully, medical knowledge has evolved significantly. Nowadays most people know that it’s not “tooth worms,” but dental plaque that eats away at tooth enamel and causes dental decay. Dental treatments have improved, too. Thanks to modern dentistry, toothaches, cavities and other dental ailments can be easily diagnosed and treated by your 94523 dentist.
